Good morning, folks...

The Texas Rangers were shut out by the Houston Astros last night by a score of 3-0.

The S-T’s game story talks about Lance Lynn pitching well for the Rangers, but Justin Verlander being better.

Evan Grant’s game story talks about the offense being shut down by Verlander.

After so many close ball/strike calls went against Texas on Thursday, Chris Woodward expressed his frustration, but also said he wanted umpires to realize the Rangers hitters are more disciplined this year than in years past.

The Rangers have made a series of promotions in the minors, most notably including Cole Winn being assigned to low-A Hickory.

Jeff Wilson writes that Delino DeShields’ time in the minors may depend on how long the Rangers are comfortable with Joey Gallo in center field.

Hunter Pence explains how he made changes to his swing in an effort to become a productive player again.

The Rangers’ website has notes on the team’s improved approach, Jeff Mathis, Cole Winn, and Tyler Phillips.
