Best in the West
How Are the Rangers Winning?
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - The Texas Rangers are somehow in first
place in the American League West.
The Rangers have been without Nelson Cruz or Ian Kinsler every
game. Opening day starter Scott Feldman and prized offseason
rotation addition Rich Harden have both struggled.
Off the field, the pending sale of the team drags on without
resolution despite a deal struck 3½ months ago.
Still, the Rangers (18-14) were atop the division Monday, their
first off day in three weeks. They are a game ahead of Oakland,
which opens a three-game series in Texas on Tuesday.
Texas went 13-7 during their uninterrupted stretch of games,
including a four-game weekend sweep of the Kansas City Royals.
