07:34 AM ET 06.07 | The Rangers were a Rich Harden win away from sweeping the team with baseball's best record, and it's clear "the clock is officially ticking" on his spot in the rotation. In what might elsewhere be described as torture, Harden kept his teammates and the sweltering crowd of 26,932 sitting for more than two hours in 93-degree temperature while he threw 111 pitches in five innings. The game took 4:06, making it the third-longest home game in Rangers history and the longest in 10 years. Anybody who walked away thinking Harden had pitched well was promptly treated for heat exposure. Among the potentially afflicted: Harden himself. "I felt pretty good," Harden said.
