Although the Frisco RoughRiders lost their third consecutive game on Sunday, third baseman Mike Olt belted his fourth home run of the season. Lone Star Dugout takes a look at all of the day's minor league action in the Texas Rangers' system.
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
ARLINGTON, Texas On a night when a sluggish Rangers offense was made to look even more drowsy by Yankees starter C.C. Sabathia, Josh Hamilton remained the primary power source for the Rangers offense.
Hamilton sent a Sabathia pitch 422 feet into the seats overlooking the Rangers bullpen in the sixth inning of a 7-4 loss.
It was Hamilton's eighth home run in 17 games this season...
So I had the very fine pleasure of watching Yu Darvish turn a very good Yankee lineup, in a very good hitters' park, into absolute meek hamburger last night, as the Rangers beat the Yankees 2-0.Darvish went 8.1 innings, giving way only to the one double play pitch of Joe Nathan to finish things off, and never looked like he was doing anything difficult. And sure, it's April...
Title got your attention?
Well, if the title got your attention, the hot hitting and hot pitching Texas Rangers will keep it.
The Rangers have scored 100 runs in 2012 and have only given up 49 runs year to date for an astonishing +51 run differential.
It is only April 24th.
The Texas offense is led by former MVP Josh Hamilton, who is hitting .400 with 8...
The Texas Rangers certainly enjoyed themselves at Comerica Park over the weekend, taking three of four from the Tigers. To me, they proved that they are the class of the American League. And judging from this little clip their fans enjoyed themselves a little bit too.
Here’s video from the Rangers 3-2 on Sunday. Fox Sports Detroit’s Shannon Hogan was doing a spot shoot...
April 24, 2012: Yu Darvish pitched 8 1/3 shutout innings, allowing seven hits and two walks while striking out 10 in leading the Texas Rangers to a 2-0 victory over the New York Yankees.
Line: 8.1 IP | 7 H | 0 ER | 2 BB | 10 K; W (3-0) | QS
My fantasy perspective: Fantasy baseball managers may have seen Darvish as a bit of a wildcard going into their drafts but he’s easily proving...
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Yu Darvish arrived in Texas a star. Tuesday night against the New York Yankees, he looked like one. Darvish, the Rangers' high-priced Japanese import, delivered the best outing of his young career, befuddling the Yankees in Texas' 2-0 victory before a sellout crowd of 47,085 at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. The Yankees couldn't do much against...
Braxton Lane inked with Oregon out of high school and signed with the Texas Rangers after being drafted in the 5th round. Four years later he is now looking to go back to college and play football. This past weekend the Georgia native visited Ole Miss. To find out where his recruitment stands, read below.
3 HR's for Hamilton in the series
It’s safe to say that this past series between the Texas Rangers and the Detroit Tigers is one that will try and be quickly forgotten. Coming into this series the Rangers were coming into Comerica Park winners of their past six games in a row. The Tigers had just come a sweep of the Kansas City Royals and winners of their last four.

FOX Sports reporter Shannon Hogan was videobombed during a live segment at Sunday's Detroit Tigers game by a Texas Rangers fan who stood right behind her wagging his tongue.
The Rangers fan started out innocently enough, showing off his jersey and walking away. However, a few seconds later, the Rangers fan came back and started wagging his tongue like a crazed maniac...
