Fresh off the first series loss of the season, 1-2 in the series against the Tampa Bay Rays, the Texas Rangers look to go north of the border and regain their winning ways. Derek Holland was rocked hard in the 2nd inning against the Tampa Bay Rays allowing 3 runs in that inning. Yu Darvish will be on the mound for the first time against the other team that looked to be heavily interested in the Asian sensation. Darvish is 3-0 on the year and has gotten consistently better with every start so far this year, most recently a 8.1 inning affair against the New York Yankees that could only improve with the decrease in the number of hits allowed. The Rangers go into this game 16-6 so far, this is game 23 of the year.

I am married to a wonderful woman who relunctantly tolerates baseball. I have three great kids who chase down autographs and foul balls with the best of them. I have been a fan of baseball my entire life, literally at a Big Red Machine game while in utero. I love my Texas Rangers since I can remember, I remember Mitch Williams being a Texas Ranger okay? While I am away from Texas I have the pleasure of watching the Rangers prospects playing with the Hickory Crawdads and Myrtle Beach Pelicans. The Texas Rangers Farm System, past and present is a real treat for me and will be happy to answer any prospect question you may have.
