Good morning.

T.R. Sullivan recaps the Rangers’ 5-4 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals from Sunday where Texas rallied from down a run in extras to pull off another striking win at home.

Jeff Wilson reacts to the win and specifically the superlative outing that Jose Leclerc had in yesterday’s contest.

Evan Grant writes that Danny Santana ended up being a key player in Sunday’s walk-off despite exiting Saturday’s game with an injured ankle.

Sullivan has notes on Santana’s unlikely contributions as well as the latest news from the beat.

Wilson writes that Willie Calhoun ended a triumphant whirlwind first week with the Rangers with a key pinch hit RBI single in the tenth inning to help fuel the comeback.

Grant attributes Calhoun’s early success in his return to the majors to a new and improved mindset following the disappointing demotion at the end of Spring Training.

And, lastly, Will Leitch lists the hitter that is most strikeout adverse on each team. Elvis Andrus is the Ranger named but it is his injury that brought us Calhoun’s ascension so I say bring on the Ks!

Have a nice day!
