The A's will visit the Rangers for a short two-game series. It will be the first meeting of the year between the two teams.
The Oakland A's just split a short two-game series in Anaheim where they and the Los Angeles Angels swapped shutouts. The A's will definitely need to muster some runs in another quick two-game series beginning on Wednesday, as they will be tussling with the formidable Texas Rangers.
It will be the first meeting of the season between the two teams. The Rangers have a fearsome lineup of mashers who will annihilate pitching mistakes, so the A's will definitely need to be on their toes and try to scratch out some runs against the Rangers. This would be a good opportunity for the second-place A's to try and gain a bit of ground on the first-place Rangers.
