The Athletics kick off a big four-game series against the Rangers on Monday. The A's are trying to gain ground in the division.
The Oakland Athletics have had a terrible skid over the past two weeks. While they managed to snap their nine-game losing streak, they were right back in the loss column the very next day. They were shut out in two of three games against the Kansas City Royals and are hoping that a return home will provide a bit of a lift.
The A's will have a big four-game series against the first-place Texas Rangers at O.co Coliseum beginning on Monday. The Rangers are coming off of losing series against the Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels so the A's will be hoping to rack up some wins and gain ground in the division against a possibly struggling Texas team.
