What is possibly better than winning an important game and gaining ground in the AL West? Handing the ball over to your ace who has absolutely no problem pitching in big games.

Cole Hamels will get the ball for the Rangers tomorrow and that is absolutely exciting news for the Rangers. The Rangers got him for this very reason, to win big games down the stretch. Tomorrow is a big game, not only because they are going for the series win, but a series win heading into an off day. A win, and the team gets to enjoy themselves a lot more on the day off. A loss, and the team finds themselves chomping at the bit to get back onto the field.

For Rangers fans, tomorrow is everything we could’ve hoped for. Our ace gets the ball, we are playing meaningful baseball, and the team is having some fun again. That my friends, that is worth staying up late for!
