Murphy’s five RBI help keep Tigers at bay

A game in which Roy Oswalt goes six innings and David Murphy has four hits, including two home runs, sounds like an easy win, right? Not so fast there. No.  My boys had to make it interesting again. Roy Oswalt was decent tonight.  Not great, but decent.  He pitched six innings, allowing five runs on 13 hits.  Yeah, that’s a lot of hits, Roy.  You’re probably lucky the Tigers...

Rangers 13, Tigers 9

David Murphy went 4-for-5 with two home runs and matched his career high with five RBIs to make a winner out of Roy Oswalt in the Texas Rangers' 13-9 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday night. Ian Kinsler added a two-run homer and Adrian Beltre had three hits and an RBI in support of Oswalt, who earned his second victory in as many starts with the Rangers by pitching...

Darvish finishes strong to get 10th win

ARLINGTON, Texas Just imagine how impressive Yu Darvish would be if it weren't for the first inning. Darvish had another rough first inning Tuesday night against the Tigers, but overcame it to record his 10th win and his fourth game with 10 or more strikeouts. He's now tied with the Mets' R.A. Dickey for double-digit strikeout games. With the 7-5 victory, the Japanese...

Josh Hamilton’s Weakness On Full Display

I don’t mean to beat a dead horse. I know I just wrote about Josh Hamilton‘s approach at the plate on Tuesday. We’re not breaking any new ground here, but last night was such a striking example of Hamilton’s current problems, and the four images I’m about to show you make the point so obvious that they need to be recorded for posterity. Josh Hamilton struck out four...

Tigers can't keep up in loss to Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- David Murphy went 4-for-5 with two home runs and matched his career high with five RBIs to make a winner out of Roy Oswalt in the Texas Rangers' 13-9 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday night. Ian Kinsler added a two-run homer and Adrian Beltre had three hits and an RBI in support of Oswalt, who earned his second victory in as many starts with...

Rangers 7, Athletics 6

Leadoff man Ian Kinsler got four hits, scored three runs and stole two bases Thursday night, sending the Texas Rangers past the Oakland Athletics 7-6 for their 11th win in 13 games. Josh Hamilton, Adrian Beltre and David Murphy each drove in two runs for Texas in a game that lasted 3 hours, 54 minutes, the Rangers' longest nine-inning game of the season. Scott Feldman (2-6...

Can The A's Handle The Heat In Texas?

If the Oakland A's hope to make any noise in the American League playoff race this season, they will have to start with a good showing in a tough series on the road against the division leading Texas Rangers.

Fielder drives in 4, but Tigers lose to Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Yu Darvish struck out 10 in seven innings to win his seventh consecutive start at Rangers Ballpark, a 7-5 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night. After giving up two runs in the first four batters, Darvish (10-4) had his fourth double-figure strikeout game while joining teammate Matt Harrison and Tampa Bay left-hander David Price as the American...

Game 2012.75: Tigers at Rangers

36-38, 3rd place, 3 games behind CWS Dombrowski said today that “he did not think that 2B is going to be the reason why we win or lose the division.” Was this an endorsement of Santiago? Santiago’s hitting .286 in June and as long as Ramon gets the majority of the ABs, then I agree with DD. Despite that, Tigers 2B are hitting .202 this season, which is why Lowrie remains a...

Get ready for Rangers to fill up All-Star roster

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By MIKE FITZPATRICK AP Sports Writer Two straight trips to the World Series have turned the Texas Rangers into baseball's glamour gang. Josh Hamilton is the most popular player in the game. Mike Napoli could run for mayor of Arlington. Adrian Beltre, Nelson Cruz and Yu Darvish - household names by now. Just a few years ago the Rangers were toiling in...

Drew Smyly Rocked by Texas Rangers in Return From DL

Unlike in Monday's wire-to-wire win, the Tigers could not make an early lead stand up, and they dropped a 7-5 decision. Continue reading →
