In their quest to win two games in a row, the Rangers were able to muster just two hits.
Athletics pitcher Kendell Graveman stifled the Rangers offense which, up until last night, was the one part of the game that was clicking.
Yu Darvish was up to his old tricks, getting no run support while giving up just one run.
But in the end, the Rangers bullpen continued its early season tanking. And the Rangers are going to have to wait for that elusive two-game winning streak for another day.
A series win would be nice, though.
Sean Manaea (0-0, 6.00) vs. Martin Perez (0-1, 4.50)
