The Rangers’ opponent has scored first in 10 of the last 11 games, including the past nine. That includes tonight’s very, very big win.

You could see it in the players’ eyes tonight, and in the dugout as Aki coaxed the 5-4 rollover to end it: This was more than just one of 162. Anything short of 6 of 9 during this pre-Break homestand is unsatisfactory, and getting that first one, especially against a pitcher like Roy Oswalt, is just huge.

Feeling fired up about baseball for the first time since the middle of the month.
