MLB: Texas Rangers at San Diego Padres Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Levi Weaver recaps yesterday’s 7-3 loss to the Padres in a game that offered something rare from the Rangers this season: Namely, drama.

Evan Grant writes that mistakes on the bases and missed opportunities at the plate led to Texas ultimately losing even before they allowed five runs in the ninth inning.

Katie Woo of MLB dot com writes that yesterday’s game looked like it was barreling toward a Rangers sweep and Mike Minor picking up his seventh win of the second half until the best prospect any team acquired in July — Francisco Mejia — hit a walk-off grand slam off Jeffrey Springs.

Grant writes that Willie Calhoun hit a homer in yesterday’s game and he may be on his way to a few more at-bats in the final two weeks.

Jamey Newberg looks at six undersung prospects for the Rangers who broke out this season.

Grant writes that Adrian Beltre hasn’t made up his mind about playing or not in 2019 but a gift-laden, attention-grabbing farewell tour is one thing he knows he doesn’t want.

And, lastly, we’re big in San Diego!

Have a nice day!
