San Francisco Giants
SAN FRANCISCO The Texas Rangers limped their way to a 4-6 West Coast road trip.
After Sunday's 5-0 victory over San Francisco, a key member of team is limping his way back to Texas.
The Rangers ended the 10-game trip by winning a series against the Giants but may have lost right-hander Alexi Ogando in the victory.
Ogando strained his right groin running to first base in the fourth inning and will have an MRI Monday in Texas. Ogando had a no-hitter through three innings at the time before he was forced to exit the game.
Despite the injury, the Rangers showed some resiliency by getting six shutout innings from their bullpen to end the trip on a winning note.
"We're going to continue to scratch and continue to claw and continue to do whatever we have to do until we get back to playing the kind of baseball we know we're capable of doing," Texas manager Ron Washington said. "Sometimes that's what you have to do in the game. I wish it would all work ou...
BEST OF MAXIM
Texas Rangers starter Alexi Ogando left Sunday's game against the Giants after three innings because of a strained right groin. He is scheduled to undergo an MRI and may be placed on the disabled list, depending on the results of the MRI. Ogando retired all nine hitters he faced, but he injured himself while beating out a sacrifice bunt for a single while batting in the top...
Alexi Ogando was perfect on the mound but oh so imperfect on the bases Sunday. So Monday, he had an MRI on his strained right groin, and Texas Rangers fans await the results and a decision about the disabled list. A pitcher who's not used to running bases got hurt running bases, and he was pulled after three perfect innings in Texas' 5-0 win over the Giants in San Francisco...
Joe Nathan has turned some of his Texas Rangers teammates into Stony Brook fans.
The Rangers closer is the only major leaguer from College World Series-bound Stony Brook, a Long Island university about 50 miles east of New York City.
Nathan got to watch the Seawolves beat LSU on Sunday night while on a team flight home from San Francisco. Nathan said Monday it was a pleasure and...
Texas Rangers right-hander Alexi Ogando is expected to miss four to six weeks with a strained right groin.
The Rangers placed Ogando on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, two days after he was hurt while running to first base on a bunt single at San Francisco. Ogando had thrown three perfect innings in his first start of the season in place of lefty Derek Holland, who is on the DL...
ARLINGTON, Texas The Texas Rangers have put right-hander Alexi Ogando on the 15-day disabled list and recalled left-hander Michael Kirkman from Round Rock.
Ogando strained his right groin beating out a bunt during Sundays 5-0 victory over San Francisco. The move is retroactive to Monday.
Ogandos next start likely would have been Saturday. The Rangers starter for that game against...
SAN FRANCISCO -- Craig Gentry followed up his 5 for 5 performance Friday by drawing a start against San Francisco right-hander Ryan Vogelsong.
Gentry's starts normally come against left-handers but Texas manager Ron Washington changed that up.
"The guy had a 5 for 5 night," Washington said. "He deserves to go out there."
Two of Gentry's hits Friday...
SAN FRANCISCO The big question mark coming into Saturday's game for Texas was how was Scott Feldman going to pitch.
The big right-hander who grew up in the San Francisco area answered that by pitching well enough to win against the Giants.
That wasn't the case for the Texas hitters or the defense.
Texas managed just five hits and committed three errors for the second...
Rangers right-handed pitcher Alexi Ogando is likely to miss 4-6 weeks with a strained right groin. Ogando, 28, joined Derek Holland and Pedro Feliz on the disabled list Monday after an MRI showed a muscle tear in his right groin. Ogando was making his first start of the season after pitching out of the bullpen and felt pain in his right groin beating out a bunt single in the...

SAN FRANCISCO -- In a rematch of the 2010 World Series, the Texas Rangers exacted some revenge, pummeling Tim Lincecum, who was the winning pitcher in the deciding game 5 of that World Series. Ian Kinsler and Josh Hamilton each hit two-run doubles off Lincecum to take the rubber game of the series as the Rangers beat the San Francisco Giants 5-0 on a warm Sunday afternoon. "...

Neftali Feliz (credits below) After last week’s column was what righted Miguel Montero’s ship, hopefully this week’s column can do the same.
This week’s column is going to be Texas Ranger themed, with two pitchers whose status as being relievers or starters being in question.

When the Rangers made Feliz their closer, it caused many...
