Sunday morning Rangers news and links

MLB: Game Two-Oakland Athletics at Texas Rangers Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, folks...

The Rangers beat the A’s in a pair of games yesterday, winning 10-5 in the early game and 3-1 in the evening game.

The S-T writes that Joe Palumbo, making his major league debut in Game 1, got lots of support from the offense, while Adrian Sampson was dominant in throwing a complete game in Game 2.

Evan Grant writes that new faces contributed significantly to yesterday’s wins, including a pair of strong major league debuts.

Shin-Soo Choo was expected to be out yesterday due to his bad wrist, but he ended up DHing in both games.

Before yesterday’s evening game, the Rangers retired Adrian Beltre’s #29 in a pre-game ceremony.

The DMN has notes on Beltre, Phillips Valdez, David Carpenter, Matt Bush, Peter Fairbanks and Nick Gardewine.
