While pitching the A's back into first place, Gray improved his record to 4 1 with a 1.76 ERA. He needed 108 pitches to do it, exactly the same number of pitches he threw in seven innings against the Rangers in a 3 0 loss last week at the Coliseum.

"They know what they want to hit, and they wait on it," Washington said.
ARLINGTON, Texas Whatever doubt there was about naming Sonny Gray the A's ace in his first full season in the major leagues was erased Monday in his 4 0 win over Texas.
Matched up against the Rangers' top starter, Yu Darvish, Gray was completely the master of ceremonies, doling out just three hits and one walk.
"I did throw a handful of sliders," Gray said, breaking into a grin. "It was a nice weapon."
had three hits, said watching Gray was a lesson in how to pitch against quality.
"The ball was coming in all over the place," Jaso said. "It was 95 (mph), 93. He threw a ball behind (Elvis) Andrus, not on purpose, but just because the ball popped out. When that happens, the pitch is usually 76. This one was 95."
Gray was good then. He was brilliant Monday, even when he uncorked a couple of wild pitches and hit a batter.

This is a team that's built to hit playing in a ballpark built for hitters. And Texas got three lousy singles off Gray, one of which should have been ruled an error. Only five visiting pitchers have thrown a shutout of three hits or fewer in what is now known as Globe Life Park.
With the return of veteran Matt Harrison from the disabled list, the Rangers gave Darvish the opportunity to pick his next foe Seattle on Sunday or Oakland on Monday with Harrison getting the other. Darvish chose Oakland, a team with a six game winning streak against him.
The A's had hoped to have Yoenis Cespedes back in the lineup Tuesday, but after Monday's game Melvin said the chances of Cespedes being in left field were down to 50 50 because he'd felt more discomfort in his strained left hamstring. "It'll be a late decision," Melvin said.

"That's something when you think of all the great pitchers who have thrown here," Gray said. "This park or any park, that's tough to do, throw nine innings like that."
"That was the toughest shutout I've ever caught," catcher John Jaso said. "After the game, it was cool. But his pitches were moving all over the place. He was making up pitches out there."
Gray said "it was so fun" and credited his sinker and the A's defense for much of the success. He credited a first inning double play for getting him out of Air Max 1 Red Black an early jam. He walked leadoff hitter Michael Choice but after the double play didn't walk anyone else.

"To do it against one of the top competitors (Darvish) in the league," Reddick said. "To do it in this park and to do it against that lineup. That's tough to do."
Make that seven. The A's scored twice in the third, then twice more in the fourth in knocking Darvish out of the game.
