I came down with some kind of gnarly flu today and the baseball gods rewarded me with a Lance Lynn start in Oakland. I feel like the Rangers played.
Player of the Game: Whichever mayor figures out a way to pry the A’s away from that cursed cathedral of misery.
Up Next: The Rangers get to be done playing in that hell hole for a little while after tomorrow. Someone will start the game for Texas in Drew Smyly’s stead while the Athletics will run whatever a RHP Aaron Brooks is in the finale. First pitch from Oakland is scheduled for 2:37 pm CT so at the very least the beating will be over with early one way or the other.
