Rougned Odor hit a two-run, walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning Tuesday to give the Rangers an 8-7 win over the Mariners.

Odor finished 3-for-5 with two runs scored, but it was his last hit that loomed the largest. After a leadoff single by Adrian Beltre, Odor drove a low offering from Edwin Diaz to straightaway center to give the Rangers the come-from-behind victory. Odor has 25 homers and 67 RBI this year, and he's hitting .272/.294/.491 overall.

Adrian Beltre went 3-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and three runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Mariners.

Beltre connected with a James Paxton offering in the third inning for a two-run shot, his 24th of the year. His 87 RBI are 10th-most in the American League, and Beltre has also scored 70 runs at the age of 37. The veteran is showing few signs of slowing down despite his advanced age, batting .290/.346/.493 in 126 games this year.

Jonathan Lucroy went 3-for-4 with an RBI single and a run scored in a win over the Mariners on Tuesday.

Lucroy has now driven in a run in three straight games, and he's the owner of a modest five-game hitting streak during which he's 8-for-15. The good stretch has his average up to .293 as a member of the Rangers, and Lucroy is hitting .298/.362/.506 on the year. He's got 20 homers, 67 RBI and 60 runs scored overall.

Cole Hamels allowed six runs on seven hits over 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Mariners.

The silver lining, if there is one, is that six of the Mariners' seven hits were singles, and the other was a double, so it's not like he was getting pounded. Of course, he also issued four free passes to go with his seven hits allowed, so Hamels deserves plenty of the blame for the bad outing. That he still owns a 2.91 ERA through 27 starts following Tuesday's outing speaks to the kind of year the 32-year-old is having in Arlington. Hamels will carry a 14-4 record into Monday's rematch with the M's in Seattle.

Tanner Scheppers (knee) tossed a scoreless rehab inning Tuesday with Triple-A Round Rock.

That's now six scoreless minor league rehab innings for Scheppers, who is due to be activated Friday after major league rosters expand. The setup man has been out all season following February knee surgery.
Aug 30 - 10:50 PM

Yu Darvish recorded nine strikeouts while allowing three runs over 6 2/3 innings in Monday's 6-3 win over the Mariners.

Two of the runs charged to Darvish scored after he exited, as Franklin Gutierrez hit a pinch-hit, two-run double off of reliever Jake Diekman in the seventh inning. Still, it was the right-hander's eighth straight quality start, and he continues to pile up strikeouts. Darvish now holds a 3.01 ERA and 90/21 K/BB ratio over 71 2/3 innings this season. He'll take on the Astros on Sunday.

Sam Dyson struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning to record his 30th save of the season in Monday's win over the Mariners.

Dyson faced little resistance in protecting a three-run lead, getting a pair of swinging strikeouts and a groundout. The closer has been a little shaky in August but was recently given a vote of confidence by manager Jeff Banister.

Carlos Beltran went 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Monday's win over the Mariners.

He was Hisashi Iwakuma's nemesis in this one, taking him deep with a solo shot in the first inning and getting to him with an RBI double in the third. Beltran also added an infield single off of reliever Arquimedes Caminero. The veteran slugger went through a 32 at-bat hitless streak but has now picked up five base knocks in his last eight at-bats.

Rangers released OF Drew Stubbs.

Stubbs refused an assignment to Triple-A Round Rock after getting pushed off the Rangers' 40-man roster last week. He'll officially become a free agent once he clears irrevocable release waivers. The 31-year-old outfielder is hitting .259/.343/.414 in 67 plate appearances this season between Atlanta and Arlington.

Derek Holland hurled six innings of one-run ball Sunday in the Rangers' 2-1 defeat of the Indians.

The one run he gave up came on a Jason Kipnis RBI single in the top of the sixth inning. Holland was otherwise excellent, yielding only four total hits -- all singles -- while walking none and whiffing five. The left-hander has put together two very good pitching lines since returning August 23 from a two-month shoulder injury. A start at home against the Astros is next.
Aug 28 - 6:00 PM

Sam Dyson pitched into danger but earned his 29th save Sunday versus the Indians.

Dyson gave up a leadoff single to Francisco Lindor in the top of the ninth inning and then issues back-to-back one-out walks to Carlos Santana and Jose Ramirez, but he rallied to strike out Tyler Naquin and then got Abraham Almonte to fly out to end it. Dyson has struggled lately, but his job seems safe for now.

Lucas Harrell (groin) hopes to resume playing catch soon.

"Last few days I’ve made great strides," he said Saturday. "Once I start getting my range of motion back I should be ready to go." Harrell is expected to rejoin the Rangers as a reliever when he's ready.
Aug 28 - 12:28 PM

Carlos Beltran is not in the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

It's a regular day of rest. The Rangers have Adrian Beltre in the designated hitter spot and Jurickson Profar at third base.
Aug 28 - 12:24 PM

A.J. Griffin turned in six shutout innings to beat the Indians 7-0 on Saturday.

He gave up five singles and issued one free pass while punching out six in the stellar effort. His teammates handed him a big early lead and in return he kept the Indians from mounting any sort of challenge. Griffin is now 6-3 with a 4.39 ERA in his first season with the Rangers.
Aug 28 - 12:13 AM

Mitch Moreland crushed a grand slam in the first inning to lead the Rangers over the Indians on Saturday.

The big fly pretty much ended the game before it began as the Indians never did cross the plate all night. Moreland scored a run in the third inning on an Elvis Andrus double. He finished the night 1-for-3 with four RBI and two runs scored. He has a .253 batting average with 22 home runs and 55 RBI on the season.
