The Rangers brought out the bats to knot their four-game series with the A's at one apiece. Michael Young, Nelson Cruz and Mike Napoli all went yard, chasing Brett Anderson after five innings. Colby Lewis pitched admirably, going eight innings and surrendering two runs.
I was starting to wonder if everything was alright in Texas, since it had been at least a week since the last time they blew a team out. But looks like everything's back to normal.
