TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

It is still early, but nothing is going right for the Rangers. Texas has lost two in a row to rival Houston, and currently sits a tie for last place in the AL West standings at 11-16 overall.

Starting pitcher Cole Hamels has been placed on the 10-day disabled list, but is expected to miss eight weeks with a right oblique strain. Hamels was scratched from his start on Tuesday night after experiencing tightness in his right oblique.

The Rangers bullpen meanwhile has been awful. Texas has lost six games when leading after six innings, and four game when leading after seven innings. Both of those lead Major League Baseball.
