Game Thread #35: Oakland Athletics at Texas Rangers

Jesse Hahn faces off against Andrew Cashner in what is somewhat of a battle between hard-luck losers; both have pitched relatively well this young season with very little to show for it. The A's will try to continue their winning ways as they have had a very successful week.

So a funny thing happened on the way from Friday to Friday this week. I wrote a scathing recap of some really bad baseball on Friday after another uninspiring A's loss, and lo and behold, they started to win; taking last weekend's series by winning Saturday, Sunday, and Monday in dramatic fashion; walking off all three games, and followed that act by winning on Wednesday to take the Angels' series, as well.

It's been a good four-out-of-five wins this week, and I will take all the losses Fridays have to offer if every week follows that pattern. So expect a loss!

Tonight's game will feature Jesse Hahn against Andrew Cashner and the lineups are below:
