G82: Rangers drop 4-2 game to Oakland

Another one of these late games – the Rangers have to get to a different division, I hate all these games that start after 9PM!
Tony Phillips of the A’s got his career 2,000th hit tonight – a single. That was a nice moment.
Esteban Loaiza came off the DL, sending Danny Kolb back to AAA. I was surprised, I didn’t think Loaiza was coming back till after the All Star Game. He only pitched the final out, but I was surprised to see him here.
I don’t remember a whole lot about this game, as again I was busy doing some other things. I’m not liking all these losses inside the division. This was our chance to distance us from the rest of the division, and we didn’t do it. :(
