Sonny Gray lasts only five frames in loss to Rangers
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Athletics starter Sonny Gray lasted only five innings in a disappointing outing Thursday afternoon at home against the Rangers, dropping to 13-9 on the year. The right-hander permitted five runs -- four earned -- on eight hits and two walks while striking out four over five innings of a 7-2 defeat.

Over his last four starts covering 25 innings, Gray has allowed 14 earned runs. He owns a 3.28 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP over 31 starts (203 innings). His next start will come Tuesday at home against the Angels.

Stephen Vogt still a no-go Thursday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Athletics first baseman Stephen Vogt remains out of the lineup for the Thursday game against visiting Texas. He has been dealing with an ankle issue that has prevented him from playing for two weeks aside from one at-bat Wednesday.

When Vogt returns full-time, he will do so in a 3-for-22 slump.

Sean Doolittle blows save, takes loss Wednesday vs. Rangers
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Athletics closer Sean Doolittle blew a save opportunity Wednesday and was stuck with the loss in his team's 6-1 defeat against the Rangers.

Doolittle (1-4) was tasked with protecting a 1-0 lead but surrendered a game-tying double before the Rangers broke things open with a three-run home run. The closer finished with five earned runs on three hits and two walks in just one-third of an inning. Doolittle owns a 2.97 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 83:7 K:BB ratio in 57 2/3 innings.

Jeff Samardzija strikes out 10 in gem vs. Rangers
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Athletics pitcher Jeff Samardzija didn't factor into the decision Wednesday despite giving up just four hits in eight scoreless innings while striking out 10 and walking none in his team's 6-1 defeat against the Rangers.

Samardzija matched his season high for strikeouts in the gem, and he's now delivered 15 innings of scoreless baseball over his last two starts. However, the bullpen blew his lead in the ninth inning to keep him at 6-12. Despite his record, he's been excellent this season, posting a 2.98 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 190:43 K:BB ratio in 205 2/3 innings. Samardzija is slated to face the Angels Monday.
