G27: Rangers beat A’s, 3-2

In a game where all the offense was over by the end of the fourth inning, you find good bullpen numbers on both sides. Both teams’ pens gave up no runs. All the runs were by the starters, who also pitched fairly decently.
Scott Feldman, making a spot start went six, gave up four hits and two runs. Dan Giese went 5.2 innings, giving up eight hits and three runs. Decent pitching, if not dominant.
Elvis Andrus had a home run in the first inning, then all the other four runs in the game came in the fourth inning. Cruz doubled, but for the second game in a row, the offense was mostly singles.
(This commentary is short, due to playing catch up on nine games of commentary at once).
