Good morning, folks...

The Texas Rangers lost to the A’s last night, 4-1.

Evan Grant has his “Instant Replay,” and talks about how Rougned Odor’s failure to bring runners in has crippled the Rangers season.

Levi Weaver’s game story highlights how this game was almost identical to a loss the Rangers had to Oakland and Kendall Graveman a month ago.

Jeff Wilson’s “Rangers Reaction” laments Rougned Odor’s bad season and says Delino DeShields shouldn’t be on the bench.

Delino sat because, with Adrian Beltre at DH and Carlos Gomez back, there are four outfielders sharing three spots.

Adrian Beltre wants to get back in the field this season and has taken some ground balls at third base, but still isn’t ready to play defense yet.

Wilson says the Rangers need Martinez and Miguel Gonzalez to step up after the strong starts from the rest of the rotation lately.

Evan highlights 10 things that need to happen over the next 10 days for the Rangers to get into the playoffs.

Nomar Mazara is close to reaching the pre-season goal he set for himself — getting 100 RBIs.

The Rangers did their annual rookie dress up night after Thursday night’s game while adhering to the new rules about what costumes are appropriate.

The Rangers’ website notes talk about Rougned Odor, Carlos Gomez, rookie dress up, and upcoming pitching matchups.
