Ross stellar as Rangers fall to Astros

HOUSTON (AP) -- Robbie Ross, Jr. was on a strict pitch count Saturday night after throwing two days prior. Despite that, he still pleaded his case unsuccessfully to remain in and continue his no-hit bid. It might not have mattered if he remained in. Scott Feldman pitched a three-hitter for his second major league shutout, and the Houston Astros beat the Texas Rangers 2-0. Ross was...

Series Preview: Royals at Texas Rangers, August 22-24

The Kansas City Royals take their first and only trip of the year to Arlington to take on the Texas Rangers, and they're facing a very different team from the one they thought they'd be seeing when the schedule came out for the 2014 season. Last year, the Royals and Rangers split six games, but that means next to nothing this season considering what the Rangers have gone through...

Arencibia, Claudio pitching bright spots for Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas - All you need to know about Wednesday's Texas Rangers game against Tampa Bay was there was some debate about which position player was going to pitch the ninth.

The Indians are now back to an even .500 record at 55-55 after defeating the Texas Rangers 2-0. Player Of The Game It would be hard not to give it to reliever Scott Atchison. He relieved starter T.J.

Mikolas can't carry success from his last start over

ARLINGTON, Texas - One of the requirements in the ongoing audition for rotation spots for the Texas Rangers is having the ability to be consistent from start-to-start. Miles Mikolas is still trying to meet that requirement. Mikolas, who helped his resume with a nice start at New York Monday, couldn't use that start as momentum for his Sunday start against Oakland.

Things get away from Rangers in sixth

ARLINGTON, Texas - Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington said after Saturday's 5-2 loss to Los Angeles that his club was in the teaching mode.

Rangers doomed from start once again
