It took nine games for the Rangers to break .500, winning 8-0 against the Seattle Mariners, for two straight wins in the road.

When you win 8-0 it means pretty much everything was going your way. Especially when you get five RBIs from Adrian Beltre.

Of course, Derek Holland throwing six shutout innings is just the icing on the cake. That’s now seven quality starts out of eight games for the Rangers rotation.

Oh, and Nomar Mazara can do more than hit. He has a glove.

The Rangers got twelve hits and gave up just four. They held Ranger killers Cano, Cruz and Segar to 0-for-11. Even killers have to sleep, it seems.

All in all, it was a flawless game from a team that appears to be learning how to dominate.

Expect many more of these.
