Rangers Split Series Against Oakland

The Texas Rangers, 7-7 overall, split a three-game series against the Oakland Athletics, 1-9, because of rain postponing game two. The postponed game is rescheduled for Saturday, June 8 as part of a doubleheader.

Texas lost the series opener 8-6. Shortstop Elvis Andrus had a two-hit game, including a three-run home run, his second, and a third baseman Asdrúbal Cabrera hit a solo home run, his fourth. Lefty Drew Smyly allowed four runs and struck out five in four innings before the bullpen blew the lead and earned the loss.

Texas won the series finale 8-7. Andrus had a three-hit game, including a triple and a solo home run, and drove in two runs. Starter Adrian Sampson struck out four and allowed seven runs in four innings. Eventually, closer José Leclerc earned his third save after striking out the side in a shutout ninth inning.

Texas will continue a nine-game homestand with three games against the Los Angeles Angels, 8-7.
