The Rangers scored twice in an inning four times and now trail the A's in the American League West by only 2.5 games.

At worse, the Rangers will leave Oakland trailing by 4.5 games. After being unable to gain ground on the A's for over a month, the Rangers have accomplished that feat in each of the last four days.

Player(s) of the Game: The Ranger bullpen went five innings of shutout baseball after Alexi Ogando failed to go more than four innings.
