After a three-game sweep of the reigning World Series champion, the Texas Rangers are feeling especially confident as they close in on the AL West crown.

They’ll look to win their sixth straight while inching closer to their first division title since 1999 as they begin a two-game set with the visiting Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night.

In addition to sending a message to New York before a possible postseason meeting, the Rangers’ weekend sweep of the Yankees cut Texas’ magic number for clinching the division to 12.

There remain some concerns for the Rangers (80-63) – one of them Josh Hamilton’s lingering rib injury – but a major worry was soothed Sunday as ace Cliff Lee emerged from a personal slump with eight dominant innings in a 4-1 victory.
