WATCH: Rangers' Mitch Moreland, Mike Napoli And Elvis Andrus Combine For Over 1200 Feet of Home Runs Against Mariners

No one had a worse day at the ball park than Mariners reliever Joe Beimel. He came in to the seventh inning down 3-2; not an ideal sitaution, but not a horrible one by any means. Hitting the first batter he faced wasn't how he wanted to start, but he got Adrian Beltre to line out (which was good). Then it all fell a part.Mitch Moreland hit a 365' foot home run which was followed...

Pittsburgh Pirates trade rumors: Mitch Moreland edition

The Pittsburgh Pirates have started the second half of the season on a poor note. Having lost their first two games to the Milwaukee Brewers, the Pirates now sit 4.5 back of the division leading St. Louis Cardinals.

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 Rangers haven't won consecutive games at home since June 15-16 and are 1...

Week 12: Fantasy Baseball Studs and Duds

Studs Mitch Moreland, TEX: 11-for-28 (.393), 6 HR, 10 RBI This doesn't appear to be sustainable, but Moreland is having a career year thanks in large part to his play as of late. He fell off the fantasy radar after hitting just two homers in 167 at-bats last season, but he's up to a .305 average and 14 HR already. The power is mainly what we're after here, as the average (.259 career...

He'll never forget that moment as long as he lives.
