OAKLAND Xander Bogaerts Jersey , Calif. — The Texas Rangers‘ hottest pitcher, Mike Minor, has the unenviable task of trying to slow down one of baseball’s hottest hitters, the Oakland Athletics‘ Khris Davis, when the two American League West clubs conclude a three-game series Wednesday afternoon.Davis doomed the Rangers for a second consecutive night Tuesday, smacking his 38th home run of the season, a two-run shot http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-joe-kelly-jersey , as part of a three-RBI performance in a 6-0 victory.Davis also homered in Monday’s 9-0 romp, and now has nine home runs in 15 games against Texas this season.Article continues below ...A’s manager Bob Melvin shrugged his shoulders when informed of Davis’ dominance of the Rangers after Tuesday’s win, insisting he was even more pleased with his clean-up hitter’s two-out, two-strike RBI single than his homer.“Just as impressive are his RBIs,” Melvin said. “He’s getting better. Now he’s driving in runs with two-out singles. That club wasn’t in his bag for a while.”Davis’ three RBIs raised his season total to 102, giving him three straight years with 100 or more. He established a career-high last year with 110.He has 36 more games in which to get the nine RBIs he needs to surpass his personal best. And he has four more shots at the Rangers, against whom he has hit nine homers with a whopping 24 RBIs in the clubs’ first 15 meetings.Davis will dig in Wednesday against Minor (9-6 Blake Swihart Jersey , 4.61 ERA), against whom he has one career home run and two other hits in eight at-bats.Minor collared Davis with an 0-for-2 in July when he pitched the first five innings of a 13-10 home loss to the A’s. One of the outs was a deep fly to left field.Minor left that game with a 4-2 lead after five innings, only to see the Rangers’ bullpen implode.The 30-year-old has pitched well in his last 11 starts, going 5-2 with a 3.53 ERA.He sees outings like Wednesday’s as a potential springboard to future success.“The first half of the season was pretty bad,” he said of a 4-4 start with a 5.76 ERA. “The last couple of weeks or month I think I’ve pitched better. But I’m actually looking forward to the offseason to get better and come back next year and have a complete, good full season.”Minor is 1-1 with a 3.68 ERA in five games, including two starts http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-rick-porcello-jersey , against the A’s in his career.Oakland will sent right-hander Edwin Jackson (4-2, 2.58) to the mound in search of a three-game sweep.The veteran pitched his worst game of the season at Texas in July in his only previous start against the Rangers this year, failing to get out of the fifth inning after giving up five runs and seven hits.One of the hits was a three-run homer by Rangers catcher Robinson Chirinos.The A’s rallied to win the game 6-5.Jackson has started eight games against the Rangers in his career, going 2-3 with a 4.56 ERA. A look at what’s happening around the majors today:TRY AGAINLuis Severino gets a wild-card do-over when he starts for the Yankees against Oakland in a winner-take-all matchup. Severino allowed three runs and got just one out in last year’s wild-card game against Minnesota before New York rallied for an 8-4 victory. Severino was chosen over J.A. Happ and Masahiro Tanaka despite a second-half slump.“I think he’s equipped in so many ways to handle this, and perhaps most importantly, he’s equipped with amazing stuff and the ability to dominate big league hitters because he’s such a talented pitcher,” manager Aaron Boone said.The A’s will counter with a bullpen game http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-brandon-morrow-jersey , beginning with reliever Liam Hendriks — among the more unlikely postseason starters ever. Hendriks was waived off the 40-man roster in June, spent two months in the minors, then emerged in September as Oakland’s go-to “opener” to cover for an injury-decimated rotation.Hendriks (0-1) will be just the fourth pitcher to start a playoff game after a regular season of no wins, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The previous three missed most of their seasons either to serve in a war or because of injury.DOUBTFUL DANSBYBraves shortstop Dansby Swanson appears to be a longshot to make the team’s roster for its NL Division Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Swanson partially tore a ligament in his left hand on a swing against the Mets on Sept. 25. He had pain when he tried to swing a bat Saturday in Philadelphia and received more treatment Tuesday, remaining inside while his teammates were on the SunTrust Park field. Atlanta manager Brian Snitker says Swanson has “a chance” to play, but added “I don’t know how great of one.”DAY OF RESTAfter winning an epic NL wild-card game that lasted nearly five hours, Trevor Story and the Rockies can finally take a breather. Backup catcher Tony Wolters hit a tiebreaking single with two outs in the 13th inning and Colorado outlasted the Chicago Cubs 2-1 Tuesday night at Wrigley Field in the longest winner-take-all postseason game in major league history. It was the third big game over three days in three different cities for the Rockies Jason Heyward Jersey , who play Game 1 of a best-of-five Division Series at NL Central champion Milwaukee on Thursday. “We didn’t make it easy on ourselves, that’s for sure,” Story said, “but we’re going to enjoy this one tonight and we’re definitely not done.”TWIN CITIES SEACH PARTYMinnesota is looking for a new manager one day after firing Paul Molitor. Chief baseball officer Derek Falvey and general manager Thad Levine cited a pursuit of more productive player development for their younger players. The move comes amid struggles for Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano, players long targeted as franchise cornerstones. Minnesota is willing to wait until after the World Series to decide on a skipper in case a candidate is still participating.
