Usually when a teammate delivers a game-winning hit in the ninth, the Rangers shower him with beer. "Not me," Adrian Beltre said Thursday after his two-run ninth inning homer gave the Rangers a 3-1 win over Los Angeles. "I'm getting a different kind of treatment." Indeed. Not to go into too many details, but as soon as the Rangers' finished off the win, Beltre started prepping for a battery of invasive gastrointestinal tract tests to determine the cause of the debilitating pain that has bothered him since Sunday and knocked him out of the lineup Wednesday. Beltre was still feeling ill on Thursday, but told manager Ron Washington he wanted to DH, even as he sat in his office bent over from stomach cramps.
