The A's have been hit by injuries, trades and clubhouse issues. But none of that matters if they can't win in front of their home fans.
Elvis Andrus hit a pair of two-run homers Saturday and the Rangers claimed a second straight win over the A's in Oakland.
With Yu Darvish on the mound for the Rangers, lefties Joey Wendle, Yonder Alonso and Bruce Maxwell are back in the A's lineup Saturday.
