Good morning, folks...

The Texas Rangers beat the Baltimore Orioles last night by a score of 4-3.

Stefan Stevenson writes that the Rangers won even without Joey Gallo and Shin-Soo Choo, their two top hitters this year.

Isiah Kiner-Falefa left yesterday’s game with a jammed finger, and may have to go on the injured list. Chris Woodward expressed concern about the Rangers trying to go forward, particularly with a doubleheader on Saturday, without Kiner-Falefa being available.

Jose Leclerc is pitching well again, which means manager Chris Woodward has a decision to make on how best to utilize him.

Rangers pitching prospect Joe Palumbo will be called up Saturday to start the first game of this weekend’s doubleheader, and Chris Woodward thinks it can be a good learning experience for the lefty.

Jamey Newberg looks at the process that led to the Rangers drafting Baylor pitcher Cody Bradford in the draft earlier this week.
