Colby Lewis pitched four perfect innings for the Texas Rangers in a 3-2 loss to a Chicago White Sox split squad Saturday. Lewis, the Rangers expected opening day starter, struck out five and threw 36 pitches. He struck out Paul Konerko, Adam Dunn and A.J. Pierzynski in the second inning. Konerko ended the perfect game with a leadoff single in the fifth off Scott Feldman. Dylan Axelrod, who is vying for a spot in Chicago's bullpen, allowed a run and three hits, struck out one and walked two in two innings. The White Sox scored three runs in the ninth. As a precaution, Texas right fielder Craig Gentry left the game with tightness in his left hamstring. The Rangers rested most of their regulars Saturday.

Josh Hamilton Setting Up Split from Texas Rangers?

Josh Hamilton has told everybody who will listen that when his contract expires after the 2012 MLB season that he will not be giving the Texas Rangers a hometown discount. The former American League MVP has said that while he loves playing in Texas, he doesn’t “owe the Rangers” anything. To little surprise, that has not sat well with general manager Jon Daniels...

Rangers no longer on the fence about Feliz

SURPRISE, Ariz. Texas Rangers pitcher Neftali Feliz was the picture of confusion at this time a year ago. He balked at being extended as a starter early in spring training and then tried to embrace the transition a few days later. It was never going to work because neither side had made a full commitment to the change. Feliz had become such a dominant closer, that he had a difficult...

Ryan-Ventura video out at Rangers Ballpark

The headlock seen around the world will no longer be seen at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan's dustup with Robin Ventura, which became a staple of the pregame video highlights at the park, won't be part of the package anymore. The clip of the 1993 incident, where Ventura charges the mound and is put in a headlock and pummeled by Ryan, has...

Young, Holland leads Rangers to win

Michael Young had an hit and scored a run, Derek Holland pitched three solid innings and the Texas Rangers beat a Cleveland Indians split squad 6-1 Sunday. Holland allowed a run on three hits and struck out four for the Rangers, who won for the first time in five games against American League opponents. Mitch Moreland went 2 for 2 with an RBI and Adrian Beltre also drove in a run...

Beltre has no equal at third base in the West

There's little doubt the best third baseman in the American League West is Adrian Beltre. It's not even a fair fight either. While Texas boasts one of the game's best at third base in Beltre, there's plenty of questions and intrigue at third for the other three teams in the West. For all three teams, there's no guarantee that the Opening Day starter will be...

Napoli gives Texas big boost behind the plate

One position where the Texas Rangers have some breathing room over the Los Angeles Angels is at catcher. The Angels may be the reason. Los Angeles didn't think Mike Napoli could handle the role behind the plate and dealt him to Toronto. The Angels' mistake ended up benefitting Texas which picked up Napoli from the Jays and have lived Napoli ever after since then. While...

Andrus, Aybar both excel at shortstop in West

The battle for west supremacy this year between Texas and Los Angeles also carries over to the shortstop position. Plenty of teams would take either Elvis Andrus or Erick Aybar at short and be very happy. Both players are in the prime of their career and both are heading into their fourth season as a starter at short in the big leagues. The biggest difference between the two is...

Dodgers 10, White Sox 6

Philip Humber hopes to feel this good at the end of spring training. The Chicago White Sox pitcher got into a good rhythm and threw more of his offspeed pitches, allowing two runs in three innings in a 10-6 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday night in a split-squad game at Camelback Ranch.
