    Rangers SP Cole Hamels rolls merrily along with Thursday win

    After a slow start to his American League career, Rangers starter Cole Hamels continued to prove himself a worthy pickup with an easy win Thursday. He went six shutout innings while allowing four hits and three walks in a 9-1 victory over Oakland. The Rangers have now won eight straight games in which Hamels has started and it's clear that trade really catapulted this impressive run that will likely win them their division. Over his last six starts, Hamels has a 2.57 ERA and 1.10 WHIP with 39 strikeouts in 42 innings pitched. The length is what the Rangers appreciate most though, as he's gone at least six innings in every outing with his new team.

    Rangers' Cole Hamels turns in brilliant outing in win over Mariners

    Rangers starter Cole Hamels (4-1) was superb on Saturday, as he struck out 12 Mariners while allowing one run on seven hits in a 10-1 win. Since the acquisition of Hamels, the Rangers are one of the best teams in baseball. This was by far the lefty's strongest performance for the Rangers and it comes as no surprise against a lefty-heavy lineup like the Mariners. In his nine starts with Texas, he has gone at least six innings in each and Hamels is being the work horse that they were expecting. He'll look to continue his fantastic form against the Astros next Friday.
