The Rangers will try to get back over the hump at the expense of another team attempting to work its way up the standings when they host the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday for the opener of their four-game series.Texas has received strong starting pitching during its recent run of seven wins in nine games, with an average of 2.4 runs allowed in the victories. The Rangers pounded their way to 10-4 triumphs in each of the first two games of their weekend set against Seattle to improve to 34-33 but fell off on Sunday, dropping a 7-3 decision. The Blue Jays were one game under .500 at 32-33 after a win over Tampa Bay on Wednesday but can't seem to get over the hump as they lost two of three to the Chicago White Sox over the weekend to fall to 33-35.
