The A's and Rangers exchanged infield hits to open the game, and after Hahn disposed of his first inning hitters, Colby Lewis tried to do the same. After Sam Fuld's hit, Lewis walked Sogard on four pitches to set up a favorable situation for the A's. Unfortunately, Ben Zobrist popped up a 3-1 pitch and Billy Butler grounded out into the inning-ending double play. A bloop single by Fielder put the Rangers on the board in the third, and we're going to the bottom, A's trailing 1-0. LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
