    Jul 10, 2013, 6:51 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Baltimore Orioles

    Rangers 8, Orioles 2: Adrian Beltre hit two homers on a 4 for 4, 5 RBI night. He has an 11 game hitting streak and is 21 for his last 43. Wrecking crew. – He’s not a member of the All-Star team despite a line of .319/.362/.551. Thank you, Jim Leyland, though, for giving us five middle…

    Jul 9, 2013, 1:18 PM EDT

    Byron Buxton

    Baseball America released its midseason top 50 prospects list yesterday–updating their preseason list based on performances, injuries, and graduations to the majors–and the Twins had 19-year-old center fielder Byron Buxton at No. 1 and 20-year-old third baseman Miguel Sano at No. 3. Preseason lists are the standard for measuring prospect status and things could change…

    Jul 5, 2013, 6:16 AM EDT

    Adam Dunn

    White Sox 3, Orioles 2: A walkoff homer for Adam Dunn won it, but seven shutout innings — with 11 strikeouts — from Jose Quintana helped make it possible.

  5. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 27, 2013, 6:53 AM EDT

    R.A. Dickey

    Blue Jays 3, Rays 0: R.A. Dickey throws a Maddux (i.e. a shutout in under 100 pitches), with his knuckler back up to the velocity he featured so often during his Cy Young season. Game was over in two hours, ten minutes. Athletics 5, Reds 0: A.J. Griffin needed 108 pitches for his two-hit shutout…

  6. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 10, 2013, 6:49 AM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals v Cincinnati Reds

    Cardinals 11, Reds 4: I’ll take “Improbable scores for an extra-inning game for $200, Alex.” It was already 7-4 in the top of the 10th when Matt Holliday came to the plate but he hit a grand slam off Curtis Partch to truly ice the game. J.J. Hoover was charged with six of the seven…

    Adrian Beltre Getty

    Adrian Beltre exited Saturday’s game after injuring his hamstring running the bases and then sat out Sunday, but an MRI exam revealed what the Rangers are calling a “minor” strain for the third baseman. Texas has today off and manager Ron Washington indicated to Todd Willis of ESPN Dallas that Beltre could be back in…

  8. Bust no more: Carlos Gomez has been one of the best players in baseball

    May 28, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Carlos Gomez

    Carlos Gomez continued his breakout season yesterday by smacking two homers against the Twins, who acquired him from the Mets as a prospect in the Johan Santana deal and traded him to the Brewers for J.J. Hardy two disappointing seasons later. Gomez was a bust in Minnesota, hitting .248 with a .645 OPS in 290…

  9. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 23, 2013, 6:57 AM EDT

    Star Trek into Darkness

    Phillies 3, Marlins 0: Cliff Lee shuts out the Marlins on three hits. Granted, it doesn’t take anyone as good as Lee to shut out the Marlins, but that’s nothing that Lee could help. He was dominant. Just like Benedict Cumberbatch in that scene when he killed all those [alien race redacted to avoid spoilers]…

  10. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    May 15, 2013, 6:26 AM EDT

    Andrew McCutchen, Jean Segura

    Pirates 4, Brewers 3: Andrew McCutchen with a walkoff bomb in the 12th. John Axford surrendered the lead in the eighth. He’s got a nifty 9.20 ERA now. Dodgers 2, Nationals 0: Clayton Kershaw stuck out 11 in eight and two-thirds shutout innings. He tossed 132 pitches: the most in his career and the most…

  11. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 23, 2013, 6:46 AM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Boston Red Sox

    Red Sox 9, Athletics 6: Just yesterday Mike Napoli was named player of the week for last week. He’s making a bid for a repeat now, hitting a grand slam and driving in five runs here. Overall he has 25 RBI in 19 games. Orioles 2, Blue Jays 1: Chris Tillman had a one hitter…

  12. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 22, 2013, 6:22 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Angels 4, Tigers 3: Watched most of this one as I painted a couple of rooms in my house. Two highlights of the game for me were (1) overhearing my girlfriend use some really bad language the second or third time the Tigers left the bases loaded; and (2) Tigers color commentator Rod Allen, when describing…

  13. Josh Hamilton has miserable return to Texas in Angels’ loss

    Apr 5, 2013, 6:19 PM EDT

    Texas Rangers fans hold signs mocking Los Angeles Angels' Josh Hamilton in Arlington, Texas

    Josh Hamilton had no answer for the boos that rained down in his return to Arlington on Friday; the former AL MVP went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts and a couple of misplays in right field as the Angels lost to the Rangers 3-2. Adrian Beltre hit a game-tying homer for Texas in the seventh, and…

  15. Rangers send top prospect Mike Olt to Triple-A

    Mar 19, 2013, 12:48 PM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Boston Red Sox

    For many and probably even most teams a 24-year-old prospect as good as Mike Olt would be set for an everyday role, but the Rangers’ third base and corner outfield depth means he’s headed back to the minors. Today the Rangers assigned Olt to Triple-A, which he skipped in jumping from Double-A to the majors…

    Adrian Beltre Getty

    Adrian Beltre is healthy now after sitting out Round 1 of the World Baseball Classic with a strained calf muscle, leading to some speculation that he’d join the Dominican Republic for Round 2 later this week.

  18. Mitch Williams speaks complete nonsense about the Nolan Ryan situation

    Mar 6, 2013, 9:50 AM EDT

    Nolan Ryan Rangers

    This will be interesting news to almost every general manager in Major League Baseball: Mitch Williams, who is paid for his baseball insight, apparently believes that one cannot be a general manager unless one played baseball. He writes this about the Nolan Ryan drama on his blog: I don’t know [Jon] Daniels, but the way…

  19. Dominican Republic crushes Phillies 15-2 in exhibition

    Mar 5, 2013, 4:08 PM EDT

    Jose Reyes

    The Phillies meant to give the Dominican Republic a proper tuneup on Tuesday, going so far as to start likely ace Cole Hamels. This one was quickly a rout, though, as the Dominican club collected a whopping 28 hits and steamrolled the Phillies 15-2. Jose Reyes, Robinson Cano and Hanley Ramirez all homered for the…

  22. Ian Kinsler “not thrilled with the idea of changing positions”

    Dec 11, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Ian Kinsler Getty

    Last month amid questions about how top prospect Jurickson Profar will fit into the Rangers’ lineup Ian Kinsler said he’d be willing to play wherever the team wants him: I’m paid to be a Texas Ranger. Where I play on the field is not my decision. I’m going to do whatever I can to help…

  23. Everyone’s sorry about how Michael Young’s situation played out in Texas

    Dec 11, 2012, 9:04 AM EDT

    Michael Young dugout

    Richard Durrett of ESPN Dallas has an in-depth story about Michael Young‘s departure from Texas and all of the drama that surrounded his final three years with the Rangers.
