Lefty John Koronka allowed 10 hits and six runs in 5 1/3 innings to take the loss upon his recall from Triple-A Oklahoma. He didn't get much support, as the Rangers struggled against A's starter Dan Haren, managing only four hits and a run in his eight innings.
American League ERA leader Dan Haren allowed just one run on four hits in eight strong innings, improving to 6-2 on the season. He got plenty of support, including three RBIs from designated hitter Dan Johnson, two of which came on a first-inning triple.
