Wednesday's pregame Rangers notes

Rangers manager Ron Washington is looking for at least five innings today from Scott Feldman as the Rangers close out their run of 20 games in 20 days. The good news is that everyone in the bullpen is available, and with an off day Thursday, Washington won't hesitate to go to them. Part of the creditfor all the available arms goes to Matt Harrison, who rallied after a 35-pitch first inning and pitched into the eighth.

Mike Napoli admitted that he still doesn't feel comfortable in the batter's box during most of his at-bats. He gets a day off today after catching the first two games, and is hitting only .235. He hasn't hit a homer since April 25. Ian Kinsler hasn't homered since April 24, but isn't worried about that as long as he's getting on base and scoring runs.

The Rangers have won 16 road games this season, which has them tied with Atlanta for the major-league lead. Their 16-8 record is the best 24-game road record in team history. The Rangers are 7-4 against the AL West so far and have won 41 of their past 54 division games.
