Good morning.

T.R. Sullivan recaps the wild 11-10 win by the Rangers over the Astros yesterday that saw its fair share of milestones.

Stefan Stevenson reacts to the win in what was the latest crazy game that the Rangers have come out on top of so far this season.

It wasn’t all peaches and gravy for Texas yesterday. Sullivan examines how the Rangers went from leading 10-1 in the sixth inning to having to take closer Jose Leclerc out of the game still needing an out with the bases loaded in the ninth.

Stevenson writes that even though the Astros are division favorites, the Rangers haven’t backed down to them while taking both series between the two so far.

Levi Weaver’s Weaver Wire for the fourth week of the season implores us to enjoy things like the Rangers being 12-8 for as long as it lasts.

Tyler Phillips made David Laurila’s Sunday notes over at Fangraphs as the righty continues to open eyes with the way he’s pitched at High-A Down East so far.

Mike Rosenbaum of MLB dot com names Diosbel Arias as the top performer on the farm for Texas yesterday after a three extra base hit day.

Sullivan has notes on the whereabouts of Asdrubal Cabrera and Nomar Mazara after both were out of the lineup on Sunday.

Jamey Newberg begins a series pondering what a contending Texas Rangers team might look like three years from now with a gander at position players.

And, lastly:

The final seal has been broken. The veil is lifted. Now, at last, we can all come together as a people and agree that Joey Gallo is good.

Have a nice day!
