Fiers, Minor square off again as A's host Rangers

Two veteran pitchers quite familiar with one another duel again Thursday afternoon when left-hander Mike Minor leads the visiting Texas Rangers up against righty Mike Fiers and the Oakland Athletics.

The A's will be seeking a three-game series sweep of the Rangers, who have lost four of five. Oakland has also won five games in a row.

The 32-year-old Minor and 35-year-old Fiers went head-to-head twice last September, with the A's prevailing both times in different types of games.
