Rangers' improving Griffin to face White Sox

ARLINGTON, Texas -- It's no coincidence that the Texas Rangers started to make their way back up in the wild-card standings about the same time right-hander A.J. Griffin came off the disabled list.

Griffin (6-3, 5.07 ERA) has made three starts since coming off the disabled list Aug. 3 because of a left intercostal strain. Griffin has pitched well since coming off the DL. He's 2-1 in those three starts with a 3.38 ERA and opponents are batting just .198 against him.

Griffin will look to continue that trend Sunday when the Rangers face right-hander Miguel Gonzalez (6-10, 4.67 ERA) and the Chicago White Sox in the final of their four-game series. With a win, the Rangers can wrap up the homestand 8-2 after their 17-7 win over the White Sox Saturday.
