The Texas Rangers have now won 11 straight games, quite an accomplishment in the MLB where winning over long stretches in consecutive games isn’t real common. But the Rangers are doing it and doing it well. In this latest winning incarnation Vladimir Guerrero cracked out a game winning single with two outs in the ninth. It’s the kind of thing that has to happen if you’re going to challenge for a spot in the World Series.
The bwin gives the Rangers a three game lead in the AL West over the Angels and a 10-game lead over the Atletics and Mariners. Staying ahead of the Angels will be crucial as the season moves into the second half.Eric Drouant
