The Texas Rangers, embroiled in controversy due to the financial instability of their current owner, scored 7 times in the fourth inning last night and held on for a 9-6 win over the Tampa Bay Rays, in front of 36,245 at The Ballpark at Arlington.

The Rays grabbed the lead with a four-run, but gave two back in the bottom of the inning. Texas then rolled their seven-spot two innings later. Tampa Bay scopred single runs in the seventh and eighth innings but weren't able to complete the comeback.

Josh Hamilton went 3-for-4 with a solo homer for the Rangers, Justin Smoak went 3-for-3, scored twice and hit a two-run homer in the second inning. Ben Zobrist went 3-for-4 and scored twice for the Rays, who also got a solo homer in the seventh inning off the bat of Evan Longoria. C. J. Wilson allowed five earned runs in five innings for Texas while striking out five to get the win, he's now 4-3. Neftali Felix came on in the ninth and fanned two for his 15th save of the season. Wade Davis allowed eight earned runs in 3 1/3 innings to take the loss for Tampa Bay, he's now 5-5. The Rays slip to 36-19 and see their lead over the Yankees remain at two games in the A.L. East.

Chornomud returns as head coach of the U.S. InLine National Team for the second straight year after leading Team USA to the silver medal at the 2009 IIHF InLine Hockey World Championship in Ingolstadt, Germany.

In addition, former U.S. InLine National Team member Joe Milewski will make his Team USA coaching debut as the assistant coach. Milewski is a two-time member of the U.S. InLine National Team (2000, 2002), capturing the bronze medal in 2000.

As part of the team's selection process, approximately 25 players will participate in a two-day camp from June 20-21 in Lakewood, Colo. The 2010 U.S. InLine National Team roster, consisting of 12 skaters and two goaltenders, will be announced shortly thereafter. Team USA begins preliminary-round play against Canada on June 28.

NOTES: Support staff for Team USA includes general manager Dan Brennan, USA Hockey's manager of the ice and inline coaching education program, and athletic trainer Erik Marsh and equipment manager Robert Rush, both of whom serve in the same capacity at the U.S. Air Force Academy ... In the 13-year history of the IIHF InLine Hockey World Championship, the United States has earned four gold medals (1996, 1997, 2004, 2006), three silver medals (1998, 2001, 2009) and three bronze medals (2000, 2003, 2005). The IIHF InLine Hockey World Championship was not held in 1999.

TOURNAMENT FORMAT
The 2010 IIHF InLine Hockey World Championship will include 16 teams divided into the Top Division and Division l. The United States will compete in the Top Division alongside Austria, Canada, the Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Slovenia and Sweden. Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Croatia, Great Britain, Hungary, Japan and Slovakia will comprise Division I.

For the preliminary round, the two divisions will each be divided into two groups of four teams based on rankings (Top Division-groups A and B, Division I-groups C and D). Following round-robin play within each group, the two lowest ranked teams from the Top Division and the two top teams from the Division I will face off as part of play-in games to determine pools for the playoff round.

Carlos Rivera was angry that a census worker got all the information from his child.

As the 69-year-old census counter was leaving, Rivera got home — and demanded the census form back, according to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office. The census worker wasn't going to give up the form.

Rivera reached into the car and wrestled with the census employee until he was able to take the form from the worker, reports the Daytona Beach News-Journal. Now Rivera has a count against him: burglary with assault.

And this isn't the first time a census worker was down for the count — a man also attacked a census worker with a pickax in Tampa.

That's all for now. Enjoy your Saturday, see you tomorrow.
