What a difference a weekend makes

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Texas Rangers Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

T.R. Sullivan recaps the Rangers’ 7-3 sweep victory over Anaheim where Lance Lynn picked up career victory No. 100.

Drew Davison writes about the Rangers claiming a win and a sweep against the now last place Angels.

Evan Grant notes that the Rangers went into the weekend with the worst record in the American League and came out the other side in a playoff spot.

The Rangers were aided all weekend by sloppy play from their visiting rivals and, as T.R. Sullivan notes, nothing exemplifies that more than Jo Adell turning into Jo-se Canseco.

Davison writes about the Nick Solak flyball that became a home run that became an error that will possibly become a Rangers’ appeal.

Grant writes that for someone who hit what should have been a can of corn flyout, Solak was robbed of his first home run of the season.

Sullivan notes that while the Rangers don’t suspect he’s injured, Mike Minor will be given a pitch limit in his next outing.

And, finally, Will Leitch looks at each team’s quarter pole MVP candidate. He names Lynn for Texas and I don’t think that’s likely but, if he keeps pitching the way he has so far, Lynn could bring the Rangers their first ever Cy Young Award. P.S. Hey look, Hanser Alberto!

Be well!
