Consider it challenge accepted. The Rangers came into Oakland with a chance to climb back into the American League West race and they now leave the Bay Area having won the series and gained a game in the standings.

The reports of the death of the 2013 Texas Rangers was greatly exaggerated.

Player of the Game: Derek Holland went eight shutout innings, struck out ten A's, and continues to establish himself as a premier starting pitcher in the American League.

Also, Ron Washington is now the winningest manager in Texas Rangers' franchise history.
