The Texas Rangers lost their most recent game, 1-0 against the St. Louis Cardinals.
However, they are, quite comfortably, MLB’s hottest team.
One game doesn’t take away everything they have done in their last 30 games.
And if you examine what they have achieved in their last 30, well, you will be amazed.

Of their last 30 games, the Rangers have won a shocking 22 of them.
The closest teams in the standings over the last 30 contests are the New York Yankees, Houston Astros, Arizona Diamondbacks, and the Miami Marlins with 19 wins.
The most impressive thing about Texas’ current run is that they have been excelling without Jacob deGrom.
Before the season, we wouldn’t have thought they had a 22-8 run in them without their best pitchers.
But they made some savvy signings, developed their own stars, and have been building a powerhouse capable of steamrolling just about every squad in the league.
In the last two offseasons, the Rangers have added a lot of talent: Corey Seager, Marcus Semien, Jon Gray, Andrew Heaney, Nate Eovaldi, deGrom, and many others.
Most of them have been excellent.
If we also consider they have had enormous success getting the most out of their own talent, such as Nathaniel Lowe, Adolis Garcia, and Josh Jung, they have put together a top-notch roster with a winning manager in Bruce Bochy.
The Rangers are 5-1 in June and have a five-game cushion in the AL West.
They haven’t shown signs of wearing down, and keep winning games.
With the best run differential in baseball at +154, they are ready to keep dominating.NEXT: The Rangers Have 2 Aces Picking Up The Slack
