Texas Rangers vs Oakland Athletics American League West Showdown
Oakland Athletics: Trying to dig out of an early season hole
Although expectations weren’t all that high in the preseason, Oakland opened the MLB 2015 season on a 14-30 run. Somewhat better lately, with a 9-6 record, the Athletics are still lacking consistency as they were just swept by the Red Sox in Boston. Don’t blame the A’s losing ways on RHP Sonny Gray (7-2 ERA 1.65) as he’s been a shining star in Oakland. Gray has allowed just 15 earned runs over 82 innings pitched during his 12 starts this season.
Texas Rangers: Along with Houston, Lone Star State squads own the AL West
If you asked people to bet against Houston and Texas being first and second overall in the AL West Division almost 60 games into the season – you would have a lot of takers. The Rangers were 16-23 on May 19 and sat 9.5 games behind Houston. Thanks to a 14-4 recent run, coupled with the Astros stumbling some, Texas is now just three games out of first place. RHP Nick Martinez (4-2 ERA 2.89) is having a solid sophomore season and the Rangers have won eight of his eleven starts.
