Good morning.

Evan Grant writes that it was another game against the NL and another loss against the NL for the Texas Rangers on Monday night.

Kennedi Landry writes that Kyle Gibson did his part in last night’s 3-1 loss to the San Francisco Giants but the bats didn’t travel with the team.

Jeff Wilson notes that the Rangers were uncharacteristically mistake prone in the deciding late innings to seal their fate in the opener.

Landry writes that Nate Lowe is having success against the shift with an MLB-leading 20 opposite field hits.

Anthony Castrovince names Lowe as one of the best under-the-radar additions in baseball so far this year.

How is Lowe getting it done? Grant proposes that maybe it’s the pants.

Wilson writes that Adolis Garcia has been a star for the Rangers as we near a month since he joined the team.

Grant writes that Garcia and team knows that after four weeks of feasting on fastballs, the changeups are coming and he must be ready to adjust.

In Ken Rosenthal’s notes column he writes that it isn’t Garcia, but American League saves leader Ian Kennedy, who has been the biggest surprise for the Rangers.

And, MLB dot com has taken a look at some of the greatest baseball cards in Rangers history including those featuring Juan Gonzalez’s mustache.

Have a nice day!
