The Oakland Athletics are on a roll and the Texas Rangers are their latest victims after beating them for the second consecutive game, 8-2 after beating them Tuesday 8-6. In last nights game, 3B Brett Lawrie hit a first inning grand slam to help the A’s.
“I was just looking for something soft and anything up in the zone that I could hopefully put a barrel on and thankfully enough, I put some good wood on it,” Lawrie said. “It’s just good that we got a team win. That’s the biggest thing, we could put up some runs early there.”
