After winning the series in Toronto, the Rangers are back in Arlington, ready for a nice 10-game homestand.  Minnesota and Tampa Bay are on deck and in the hole, but first we have to deal with Baltimore’s Fighting Showalters … I mean Orioles. The team didn’t appear to be all that inspired tonight.  Or maybe I was the one uninspired because I was tired and multitasking.  Either way, they got the job done.  And I’ll take it.  A drama-free win is actually nice once in awhile. True to Ryan Dempter’s pattern of good outing-bad outing, tonight was a good outing.  He pitched eight innings, giving up just one run on two hits in the 1st inning. He knocked ‘em down pretty well after that, only allowing two more hits. Oh yeah, and he walked two and struck out six.  More like this, please, Dempster. David Murphy is driving runs and stealing fans’ hearts all over the place.  He has to be Mr. July and Mr. August.  He’s been amazing.  Tonight, he had two hits, two RBI and a walk.
