The A's took the lead in the top of the 4th inning, thanks to another bizarre John Jaso baserunning spectacular (that lucky Rolex is sure coming through lately) and a Nick Tepesch meltdown (3 games in a row, fella). Also Seth Smith! Jedediah! Torrid A's offense! Bad Rangers defense! Arlington is such a hitters park that Sogard could muscle a sac fly. Way to go elfy! Coco did what he does best.

Rangers bullpen the rest of the way.

Whole new ballgame! Keep us on top DanK!

6-3 A's lead, we head to the bottom of the 4th.
