The Rangers beat the Athletics 4-3 Thursday afternoon to take three of four in the series and get back to within one game in the AL West.

That's an outstanding throw by Elvis Andrus under the circumstances and definitely don't ignore the perfect swipe tag by veteran backstop A.J. Pierzynski.

The Rangers entered the series with a six-game losing streak, so it appears they've righted the ship. Meanwhile, the A's have lost five of seven.
