SHAWN TOLLESON RUMORS

Blown save dooms Rangers vs. Padres

ARLINGTON, Texas – Texas manager Jeff Banister said the Texas Rangers don't get discouraged by losses. Saturday night's 6-5 loss to San Diego is a true test of that. The Padres scored three times off Texas closer Shawn Tolleson, who was a perfect 13-for-13 in save chances this year, to steal the win. The Rangers haven't won consecutive games at home since June 15-16 and are 1...
