Gentry dazzles with home run theft

ARLINGTON, Texas -- A game that featured some sloppy defense by the Rangers had one sparkling play near the end Sunday. Craig Gentry leaped up and reached over the center field wall to rob the Twins' Joe Mauer of a two-run homer in the top of the ninth. The Rangers trailed, 6-5, at the time and two more runs would have all but sunk their comeback chances. The Rangers failed...

Texas Rangers outfielder Craig Gentry made two amazing catches on Sunday, including a home run saving catch to rob Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer. The first excellent grab occurred in the fifth inning when Gentry and second baseman Ian Kinsler collided in short center field.

Sweaty Rangers fan got a little emotional in the 9th inning (Video)

Your browser does not support iframes. I’m not sure there was anyone at the Ballpark in Arlington on Monday night who wanted a win more than this guy. This Rangers fan was hooting and hollering to the point where both the people next to them were full of embarrassment during the 9th inning of Texas’ 6-5 win over the Rays. I was trying to figure out if this guy was so emotional...

Rays head to Texas for series with Rangers

The Tampa Bay Rays and Texas Rangers have met in the postseason each of the last two years. The results of their six head-to-head matchups over the next two weeks may determine whether they'll have the chance to square off in October yet again.

Feldman fails to complete Twins sweep

I was pleasantly surprised on Saturday when Ryan Dempster broke his good game-bad game pattern yesterday with a decent outing that ended up being a win.  All we needed was another decent start from Scott Feldman for a four-game sweep of the Twins. So close and yet so far. Six runs on ten hits in 5.2 innings is not a decent start, Feldman.  Not at all.   Sure, only five of those...

Ken Rosenthal of foxsports.com reported earlier in the day that Oswalt cleared waivers and suggested the Dodgers as a potential trade partner.
