The A's host the Rangers for a short two-game series. Is another sweep in order?
The Oakland Athletics are three games over .500, thanks to kicking off the second half of their season with a road sweep of the Minnesota Twins. The A's are currently firing on all cylinders and hope to keep that momentum rolling as they host the first-place Texas Rangers for a short two-game series beginning on Tuesday.
The A's are just eight games behind the Rangers in the American League West. Can they cut that to six games by the time Texas leaves town?
