Cole Hamels got knocked around for just the second time this season. He gave up nine hits and six runs before getting pulled from the game in the fifth inning, down 6-2.
Oakland would score two more in the sixth and go on to win 8-3, handing Hamels just his second loss in 17 starts this season.
Former A AJ Griffin will start on Sunday, hoping to help his team avoid a sweep in Oakland.
It is good news that most of Texas’ primary competition in the Wild Card has been losing this weekend; it’s also a little irrelevant. The Rangers are a game under .500 and are only in contention because some people think they are.
Jharel Cotton has thrown at least six innings in each of his last three starts but his ERA has gone up. Since coming from back from nearly four weeks on the DL in July, Cotton has made five starts and seen a slow but steady rise in his ERA, up to 5.63.
He’s given up five home runs in his last three starts. Speaking of home runs, Chad Pindar hit two on Saturday, his 11th and 12th homers of the year.
The A’s are a pick’em to get their sweep on Sunday.
