Texas tumbles into 2nd half of injury-plagued year

The Texas Rangers had become accustomed to coming out of the All-Star break looking for moves to bolster a playoff chase.

There are much different expectations and plans this season with an injury-plagued roster and the worst record in the majors.

After winning at least 90 games each of the past four seasons - a stretch when they went to the World Series twice, made the playoffs a third time and lost a one-game wildcard tiebreaker last year - the Rangers are now on pace for 90 losses or more. If they go 34-33 the rest of the way, they will finish with 90 losses.

The Rangers (38-57) carry an eight-game losing streak into Friday night's game at Toronto. They have lost 22 of their last 25 since being 35-35 in mid-June, falling 21 games behind AL West-leading Oakland.
