Rangers' Cole Hamels: Takes tough-luck loss Saturday

Hamels (10-4) allowed two runs on four hits and four walks while striking out five batters through 7.1 innings during Saturday's loss to the Angels.

Considering Hamels entered Saturday's outing with a 6.03 ERA over his previous six starts, this is a nice return to form. The veteran lefty owns a respectable 3.96 ERA and 1.17 WHIP for the campaign, but his 6.0 K/9 is well below the 8.6 career mark he entered the season with. Looking ahead, Hamels lines up for two tough upcoming starts. He'll face Seattle at Safeco Field and then host the Astros at home.
