The Texas Rangers Can Really Hit The Baseball

Rangers lead MLB in batting average, hits, runs, RBI, OBPEntering Thursday night's game with the Minnesota Twins, the Texas Rangers own the best record in the American league, at a mark of 72-51, while leading the AL West by five games.

One of the reasons for Texas' continued success is the team's simply spectacular offense.

The Rangers lead all of baseball in batting average, hits, runs, RBI, on-base percentage (tied with Cardinals), while sitting second in both slugging percentage and on-base percentage plus slugging.  

Coming off back-to-back World Series appearances, Texas is on track to make the postseason for the third straight year.

A return trip to October would be the first time the franchise has ever been a part of playoff baseball during three consecutive seasons.
