ARLINGTON, TX (KLTV) -

If the Rangers beat the Astros on Tuesday night, it won't because of stellar pitching by Cole Hamels. The four-time All-Star was scratched from his start because of tightness in his right oblique.

This is a big blow to Texas considering Hamels in 2-0 this year with a 3.03 ERA in five starts. The left-hander felt discomfort in his right side while warming up, and will return to Arlington on Wednesday to examined by the team doctor.
