Rangers update

Remember when the Rangers were 10 games above .500 on the last day of May? They had lost three in a row before winning last night and are just one game over .500, leaving the American League West race between two teams. From June 19-28, they went from being 1 1/2 games behind the Los Angeles Angels to 8 1/2 . The Rangers are 8-13 since the break. Don't blame the shortstop. Michael Young has hit .377 in 69 games since May 13. Former Oriole Gary Matthews was named the team's Player of the Month for July after batting .289 with eight homers, 18 RBIs, 17 runs scored and a .619 slugging percentage. Before yesterday, the Orioles' last win came on July 26 against Texas. The Rangers took two of three from the Orioles in Arlington last season.
