Oakland won two of three from the AL East?s second-place team to slice one game off its deficit in a three-game series that ended Wednesday.The Yankees open a series at Seattle (78-62) on Friday. The Mariners are the A?s chief competition for the second wild-card spot, 5 1/2 games behind Oakland.In the Rangers, the A?s will be facing a team they?ve beaten in six of their last seven head-to-heads, including a three-game series also in Oakland last month in which Texas suffered 9-0 and 6-0 defeats before rebounding with a 4-2 win in the finale.After having started Liam Hendriks and Frankie Montas a total of three times in their last seven games to fill voids created by injuries to Sean Manaea and Brett Anderson, the A?s will try someone relatively new, right-hander Chris Bassitt, against the Rangers on Friday.Oakland gave the 29-year-old a shot the last time the A?s played a non-contender ? Aug. 26 at Minnesota ? and Bassitt did his job, limiting the Twins to one run on four hits over 4 2/3 innings, setting the tone for a 6-2 win.It was his first start since July 11.Bassitt (2-3, 3.19 ERA) has faced the Rangers twice in his career, once as a starter http://www.atlantafalconsteamonline.com/calvin-ridley-jersey , and has compiled an 0-1 record with an 11.25 ERA.

We?re more hungry every day, even when we win.?In Rangers right-hander Yovani Gallardo (8-3, 5.97), the A?s will see a veteran pitcher who beat them twice last season.That, however, merely improved the 32-year-old?s career record against Oakland in 11 meetings, including 10 starts, to 2-5 with a 4.47 ERA.The Rangers took advantage of a soft stretch in their own schedule, winning three of their last five against the Twins and Angels.Nomar Mazara was the big bomber for Texas, collecting three home runs and three doubles among eight hits in 19 at-bats (.421) in the five games.Adrian Beltre also had three homers, and Elvis Andrus added two homers in that stretch during which the Rangers totaled 33 runs. BALTIMORE ? The Toronto Blue Jays Cheap Josh Allen Jersey , like many teams, have feasted on the pitching of the Baltimore Orioles this season. Toronto banged out three homers in Monday?s 5-0 victory and now has hit 37 against the Orioles this year. When the two teams meet for the second game of the series on Tuesday at 7:05 ET at Camden Yards, the Blue Jays hope to do more of the same. Toronto (68-82) will start Aaron Sanchez (4-6, 4.90) against Baltimore right-hander Dylan Bundy (8-14, 5.48).Home runs have been a huge problem for Bundy also this year as he?s given up 38 homers already ? the most in the major leagues.Article continues below ...The Jays got homers from Danny Jansen, Kevin Pillar and Aledmys Diaz in Monday?s victory.

He impressed manager John Gibbons with his work.?He?s going to get occasional strikeouts, but he needs to get ground balls, so he needs to keep those guys off-balance,? Gibbons told the media Monday. ?I?ll tell you what, I?m proud of him.?Up next for Toronto will be Sanchez. He has found success versus Baltimore in his career Authentic Josh Allen Jersey , posting a 6-3 record with a 3.87 ERA.Bundy pitched better in his last start and has a 3-2 career record plus a 3.63 ERA versus the Jays. However, the right-hander has faded after a strong start to the season.The loss in Monday?s game was the 15th time the Orioles have been shut out this season but more importantly, it tied a club record for losses in a season (107).The 1988 Orioles set that record, a season that began with 21 consecutive losses and manager Cal Ripken, Sr. being let go after just six games. This season did not have anything like that but there are a number of losing streaks and numerous other issues that the Orioles just could not fix.?It?s frustrating to say the least,? Chris Davis told MASNsports.com. ?Once we hit 100, it was kind of like ? I don?t know. I honestly didn?t have any words for it. It was embarrassing. It was frustrating. It?s one of those things you never want to be associated with, but at the same time, you?ve got to learn how to turn the page and start somewhere. Why not start now??Davis now is mired in a 1-for-25 slide and has been having one of the worst offensive seasons in baseball history. He?s probably as frustrated as anyone, if not more so.The only positive to come out of this season is that since Baltimore has just 12 games left, it looks like the team will finish with the worst record in the majors ? meaning the Orioles would get the No. 1 pick in the 2019 draft.Sometimes good things come out of bad situations.
