The day after Scott Kazmir criticized his team's play, Bob Melvin and the A's tried to downplay the comments and focus on Wednesday's game.
The A's are in need of a win. They'll turn to Jonny Gomes in the four-spot as they face the Rangers and lefty Derek Holland.
It was an off-night for the A’s, and with12 games left Scott Kazmir let his teammates know they can't afford any more losses like that.
