OAKLAND, Calif. Roger Craig Womens Jersey . —With a lineup
full of big bats, the Texas Rangers arent used to being in a prolonged slump at
the plate. Yu Darvish struggled with his control and the Rangers were shut down
once again by an Oakland starter in a 7-1 setback on Thursday that was their
seventh loss in nine games. Texas has been held to two runs or fewer five times
in seven games in June, including in all three losses to the As. The Rangers had
been held to two or fewer runs just eight times in the first two months of the
season. “Over the last three years this is out of the ordinary,” said slugger
Josh Hamilton, who is 4 for 29 on the road trip. “What has made us so good is
that if two or three guys were not getting it done, then two or three others
would be getting it done. Right now no one is getting it done.” Coco Crisp hit a
solo homer and bases-loaded triple to help Brandon McCarthy (5-3) win his fifth
straight decision as the As took three of four from the two-time defending AL
champions after losing 10 of their previous 11 games. “To be able to take three
out of four, with the struggles that weve seen here recently is a big lift,”
manager Bob Melvin said. “Offensively we did some good things this series,
certainly pitching and our defence has been really good too. We played all
facets this series. You have to play that way to beat a team like that three out
of four and we did.” Oakland had lost five straight series and gone winless in
nine since taking two of three from Tampa Bay from May 4-6. But with strong
starts from Jarrod Parker, Bartolo Colon and McCarthy and a bit more offence
than usual, the As were able to handle the struggling Rangers. Brandon Moss also
homered for Oakland, which outscored first-place Texas 24-8 in the four games.
The As have scored 33 runs in the past six games after having just 32 in the
previous 16. Darvish (7-4) gave up six runs, six hits and six walks in 5 1-3
innings, failing in his bid to become the first eight-game winner in the
American League. The normally powerful Rangers offence also was held down once
again. The As lost outfielder Yoenis Cespedes in the first inning to a strained
left hamstring going from first to third on Seth Smiths RBI single. Cespedes,
who came off the disabled list last week from a hand injury, was replaced by
Collin Cowgill. Cespedes is day to day and Melvin hopes he will be available to
pinch-hit this weekend in Arizona. Crisp, who had two doubles and six RBIs in
114 at-bats coming into the game, ended a 40-game homerless drought when he took
Darvish deep to make it 2-0 in the third. “I didnt know he was slumping,”
Darvish said through an interpreter. “But looking at today all I can say is hes
an incredibly good hitter. He looked like our Hamilton out there today.” After
Adrian Beltre got Texas on the board with an RBI single in the fourth, the As
took advantage of Darvishs wildness to break the game open with four runs in the
bottom half. Oakland loaded the bases without a hit on one-out walks to
Brandon Inge and Moss and a hit batsman for Kurt Suzuki. Cliff Pennington hit a
sacrifice fly and Crisp delivered a triple to right field after Jemile Weeks
walked to load the bases as the As went up 6-1. “The walks hurt him,” Rangers
manager Ron Washington said. “When you put so many guys on base something bad is
going to happen and it did. Hes a tremendous pitcher and even tremendous
pitchers have days like this.” That was more than enough support for McCarthy,
who retired his final 11 batters in his second start since returning from the
disabled list last week from a strained right shoulder. McCarthy allowed one run
and three hits in seven innings. NOTES: RHP Tanner Scheppers made his major
league debut for the Rangers after being called up to replace LHP Derek Holland,
who was placed on the DL because of a fatigued left shoulder. Scheppers allowed
one run in 1 2-3 innings. ... The Rangers stay in the Bay Area where they will
return to San Francisco to play the Giants for the first time since losing the
2010 World Series. They lost both road games that series and are 0-11 all time
in San Francisco. ... Melvin will manage his first game in Arizona since being
fired by the Diamondbacks in 2009 when Oakland opens a three-game series there
on Friday night. Oaklands Tommy Milone (6-5) is slated to face Daniel Hudson
(2-1). Tarell Brown Jersey . —Saer Sene scored
