ARLINGTON -- The Rangers played a doubleheader on Thursday night in Baltimore and didn't get back to Texas until after 2 a.m. CT. They had a rain delay of almost two hours on Friday night and didn't leave the Ballpark until well after midnight.

But they were back in the clubhouse ready to go at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday.

"We're fine," infielder Michael Young said. "With this group, it's always fun to be at the field. The sooner the better."

Young arrived at the ballpark in a slump, hitting .197 in his last 17 games entering Saturday. He was 14-for-71 along with three walks and 13 strikeouts. His average has dropped to .293 from a season high of .414 on April 21.

"I feel good," Young said. "I just need to bear down on fundamentals and I expect things will start going my way. If I stay focused on my job, I'll be fine. I have been down this road many times. It's nothing that worries me."
