The Oakland Athletics should be happy to be back home at the Coliseum after spending the last seven days on the road at Minnesota and Houston. They managed to take a respectable three of seven against the two division leaders, and I think the A’s will get an easy win here when hosting the much weaker and reeling Texas Rangers for the opener of a four-game series Thursday night.
Ariel Jurado (5-6, 4.92 ERA) will toe the slab for the visitors. He’s not had much success so far this month, allowing 16 runs over 17 1/3 innings of work for an 8.31 ERA. The current A’s roster is batting .346 off him and Jurado was tagged with nine runs on 14 hits over just 6 1/3 frames in two starts against Oakland during his rookie campaign last year.
Oakland hands the ball to left-hander Brett Anderson (9-5, 3.82 ERA) who unlike Jurado has been hot lately, posting a 2-0 record behind a 2.36 ERA in his last four starts.
The Rangers are 2-8 in their last 10 road games.
