Looking back at the week that passed, and previewing the series against Oakland starting today

Rangers took just one game from the Tampa Bay Rays and one game from the Seattle Mariners. Although, they had plenty of opportunities to take more.

While, the outcomes weren’t the most exciting, they’re were plenty of moments that at least made the games more enjoyable if only for a little bit.

Like when our old pal Carlos Gomez tried to throw Beltre out at first.

It’s good to know that while Beltre doesn’t want you to take his helmet off.

Bartolo doesn’t want you to put his helmet on.

Beltre and Felix always make for a fun time.

A moment cemented in Texas Rangers history.

And of course, Delino DeShields came back and made an amazing play.

Rangers will close out this homestand with a three game set against the Oakland A’s. Matt Moore will pitch game one on Monday coming off his first win of the season. Trevor Cahill will be pitching for the A’s also coming off his first win of the season and his first start of the season. We went seven innings against the White Sox, walked two and struck out eight on 92 pitches.

Tuesday’s game will be Cole Hamels versus Andrew Triggs. Triggs faced the Rangers earlier this month and got the no-decision after pitching five innings and giving up one run on four hits and two walks, struckout seven.

In the series finale, Doug Fister will make his return off the DL. His last start was April 9 against the Angels, he went 3.2 innings and gave up five runs (two earned.) A’s will put Kendall Graveman on the mound who the Rangers handed a loss to in the second of the four game series at the beginning of April. Graveman has given up at least four runs in all five of his starts and hasn’t been able to complete six innings yet.
