MLB: Boston Red Sox at Texas Rangers Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Jeff Wilson recaps a loss to the Red Sox where the Rangers didn’t stand much of a chance against Chris Sale and now lead baseball in batting strikeouts.

T.R. Sullivan writes that while the Rangers were whiffing, Doug Fister was getting bit by the home run ball.

Levi Weaver’s game story is thankfully not really about Sunday’s game.

Wilson notes that perhaps the cavalry is coming with Rougned Odor nearing a return and Adrian Beltre expected soon after.

Sullivan writes that Tim Lincecum is prepared to face hitters for the first time in many months as he begins a rehab assignment for history’s worst blister.

Jamey Newberg writes that the Rangers can lean on 2014 for experience in dealing with 2018 and beyond.

And, lastly, Wilson gets to the bottom of what is in those notebooks the cameras always catch Delino DeShields writing in.

Have a nice day!
