Game #109: Oakland Athletics vs. Texas Rangers

Can you say...AL West Showdown? 'Cause ready or not (and boy have the A's looked "not"), the Rangers are here, ready to chip away some more at the A's 3 1/2 game lead in the West. The A's need to stop the sloppy play, pitch well, and hit the ball. Is that all?

Game Thread #109: Athletics vs. Rangers (5)

Well, Texas gave us a run (this seems to be of the only variety that the A's score these days, sadly) to close the gap to 6-3, but the A's have left two on, two on, and three on. It's not been pretty. But we're going to the bottom of the sixth inning, and the A's still have outs to work with.

I hate that thread too. The A's are down 6-2. We're in the bottom of the fourth.

I hated that thread. It gave up 2 more runs, as did Milone. The A's trail 4-2, going to the bottom of the third inning. They also have one hit, but lots of baserunners that they are wasting. What else is new, really?

The A's jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the first inning behind two walks and a Moss double, after Milone threw nothing but strikes and Cespedes threw out a runner, but Milone gave it back on a terrible 2-0 pitch to Nelson Cruz. It's 2-2, we're going to the bottom of the second.
