  • Shin Soo Choo tied the game in the seventh with a two run shot off

    Texas Rangers starter Matt Moore entered Tuesday’s gameagainst the Oakland Athletics with an ERA of 7.85. Given the recent home run binge the A’s have been on — nine in the last four games — the opener of a quick two game set in Arlington certainly seemed winnable for the A’s.

    Instead, Oakland allowed five home runs, including one in the seventh and two in the eighth Danny Valencia Jersey, in a 7 4 loss that certainly seemed to have been a winnable game, were it not for squandered opportunities on offense.

    Though a two out rally brought home a pair of runs in the first and Khris Davis hit a solo shot in the fifth, Oakland 31 30 let Moore off the hook multiple times over his six innings despite eight hits and a pair of walks http://www.athleticsfanaticsjersey.c...rsey-c-14.html, which left the door open for the hosts to storm back in the final innings.

    Shin Soo Choo tied the game in the seventh with a two run shot off reliever Yusmeiro Petit, and Adrian Beltre put the Rangers ahead with a solo blast off Lou Trivino in the eighth — his 39th career homer against the A’s. Joey Gallo would add a two run shot for immediate insurance.

    The A’s left 10 men on base and left the bags loaded in the seventh. Jurickson Profar had homered in the bottom of the sixth for Texas 26 37 , and though the A’s restored a two run lead on Matt Olson’s second http://www.athleticsfanaticsjersey.c...rsey-c-15.html RBI single of the night, they would fail to tack on much needed insurance runs. Mark Canha grounded into a force out and pinch hitter Dustin Fowler struck out against Jose Leclerc to end the threat and keep the Rangers within striking distance.

    Like Moore, Oakland starter Sean Manaea have a tremendous outing, but escaped without major damage. He allowed two runs in 5 1/3 innings , with Robinson Chirinos hitting a solo homer on his 34th birthday in the fourth inning and Profar going deep in the sixth.

    With Petit on for the seventh inning, Delino DeShields http://www.athleticsfanaticsjersey.c...rsey-c-16.html, Jr.’s poped up bunt fell between Petit and third baseman Matt Chapman for a hit. Choo followed with the game tying homer. Chris Martin pitched a perfect eighth inning was credited with the win for the Rangers, his first in the Major Leagues. The 32 year old Martin had never earned a win as a member of the Colorado Rockies and New York Yankees bullpens, but he restored his career in Japan and secured his first career win on Tuesday as a beneficiary of his team’s comeback. Keone Kela struck out the side in the ninth for his 14th save.
