Good morning.

T.R. Sullivan writes that the Rangers had more than one opportunity to avoid their fate in a 7-2 loss on Sunday.

Jeff Wilson recaps the loss to the Angels which saw the villainous home team capitalize on a big inning against Shelby Miller while the Rangers missed out on their chances and took a series loss.

Evan Grant writes that with the loss, and another short and ineffective outing by a starter, the pitching situation might be coming to a head already for Texas.

Sullivan is the bearer of the bad news that Ronald Guzman will probably miss between three weeks to a month which means we’ll be seeing a lot more of Logan Forsythe than expected.

Wilson notes that with Guzman hitting the injured list with a strained hamstring, the Rangers opted to call up Patrick Wisdom because of their reluctance to bring Joey Gallo in from the outfield.

Gallo’s already doing historic things this season, as Grant notes, such as tying a record at three consecutive games with one or more each of baseball’s Three True Outcomes: A home run, a walk, and a strikeout.

At The Hardball Times, Eli Ben-Porat went in search of potential minor league prospect sleepers for this season and selected Texas’ Jonathan Hernandez for the list.

You can’t talk about no-hitters without mentioning Nolan Ryan and Thomas Harrigan includes no-no No. 7 at Arlington Stadium among the greatest for MLB dot com.

And, lastly, Jack Baer notes that when the Rangers weren’t being terrorized by Mike Trout, they were being swarmed by bees at Angels Stadium.

Have a nice day!
