The Rangers arrived in Oakland on Friday night and started slowly before making things a little interesting in the late innings. Texas got to Fernando Rodney and Jeurys Familia a bit before Blake Treinen came in to slam the door shut on an Oakland win in the opener.
Adrian Beltre recorded his 3150th hit in his career and Joey Gallo smacked his 35th home run on the season. Other than that, it was a tough night for Texas’ pitching staff and Juan Guzman at first base.
Ariel Jurado hasn’t won since his third start of the season, back in the first week of August. Since then, his ERA has gone up 50 percent, from 4.02 to 6.00. It’s a small sample, though.
After a day off on Thursday, the A’s beat the Rangers on Friday night, 8–4, behind Liam Hendricks, Chris Bassitt and the late-inning relief corps.
Oakland struggled to continue to dominate against teams like Houston and New York when it was running out replacement arms for the injured Sean Manaea and Brett Anderson. There really isn’t any problem doing that against a team like the Rangers.
Ramon Laureano hit a leadoff home run on Friday and added a second one later. His OPS+ is approaching 150 and gives the A’s a dynamic athlete in center field and at the top of the lineup.
Trevor Cahill has been awfully tough in Oakland and he’ll be a bargain for any price lower than -200, maybe even -250.
