As Minor rumors swirl, Rangers routed by Diamondbacks

ARLINGTON, Texas -- At least the Texas Rangers cleared up everyone's night early Wednesday.

The Arizona Diamondbacks scored seven times in the first inning against Jesse Chavez and added five more against Adrian Sampson in the second before the Rangers even had a hit, eventually rolling to a 19-4 rout.

It was 14-3 after two more Arizona runs in the third, not that they need those extra tallies.

The rest of the action at Globe Life Park was mostly crowd shots of kids dancing, people eating hot dogs or some just wondering why they were still at the game.

Maybe it was to see if a position player pitched. That happened, with Tim Federowicz moving from behind the plate to the mound.

It was that kind of night, though Danny Santana hit two home runs for the first multi-homer game of his career.

Here are some reactions from the Rangers' loss.

The Rangers are off Thursday, which hopefully means the next round of drama will wait until the weekend.

On Wednesday, Mike Minor's name resurfaced in trade rumors, and the thought of the Rangers becoming sellers was not popular with Minor or in the clubhouse.

Minor understands the business. He doesn't want to be traded, but he'll deal with it.
