A's Lose -- Magic Number Now at 10

The Minnesota Twins knocked off the Oakland A's this afternoon 10-3, pushing the A's a full two games behind the Angels in the AL West division race. That presents the Halos with a chance to extend that lead to 2 1/2 games with a win tonight against the Texas Rangers. The game is on ESPN at 7:05 pm and features John Lackey on the mound for LA while Kameron Loe takes the hill for the Rangers. Loe is 4-1 since being promoted from the bullpen to the starting rotation by Texas Dictator Buck Showalter.

Loe faced the Angels back on June 28th and gave up three runs without getting an out. But Loe bounced back the next night and pitched a scoreless inning, surrendering just one hit. In his recent streak as a starter Loe has beaten Minnesota twice, Seattle and the White Sox while losing to Oakland. Not exactly the toughest competition this past month. The kid will get a better test tonight despite the inconstency of the Angel hitting attack.
