ARLINGTON, Texas -- Emotion or no emotion, the Rangers need Alexi Ogando to pitch like a front-end-of-the-rotation guy if they want to make a fourth consecutive postseason appearance. Ogando produced results in Saturday's 5-1 victory over Boston. He pitched into the seventh inning, allowing one run on six hits. It wasn't an easy outing -- after the first inning he dealt with base runners the rest of his start. But Ogando got himself in and out of trouble, one major part of winning as a starting pitcher.
