OAKLAND – The Rangers and A & # 39; s do not seem to like each other much. Well, maybe we should sort this out – Adrian Sampson and the A & # 39; s do not seem to like each other very much. The starter from Texas had a problem with Ramón Laureano after successfully completing Oakland's fourth home run of the night, which almost led to a cleanup of both shelters (which would happen later).
All this dates from June 8, when Sampson Mark shouted at Canha for a homerun in Texas. Sampson also joined Laureano's bat that night. Laureano did not forget.
"Do you remember when you stepped on my bat?" Laureano asked Sampson after his home game on Saturday. "You can step on it again."
Well, this could definitely be interesting before the game is over. #Athletics #Rangers #MLB pic.twitter.com/e11K0SRIki  – Ben Ross (@BenRossTweets) July 28, 2019
Canha also has Sampson's antics not forgotten from last month.
"I think he should have known that he had that with his comments after the last game and his actions in the last game," Canha said. "This guy had a goal on his back and we were pretty excited to face him today and I think we made that clear."
The next time Laureano hit Rafael Montero, it was eighth inning. The Rangers relief threw four parries in, knocking Laureano off the final parade.
"It's what it is," Laureano said. "The pitching coach has been out there twice already, so that's a bit suspicious, but that's what it is."
This brought both dugouts and bullpens to the field, though no punches were thrown. Montero and Rangers manager Chris Woodward were both thrown out of the game.

Canha said, "I just feel like we have to throw everyone out (the unwritten rules) out of the window and just baseball play and have fun. "
The A & # 39; s won the game 5: 4 and grabbed a losing streak with three defeats. They will try to earn a series with a win in the final on Sunday. We'll see if there's a drag on Saturday fireworks.
