OAKLAND -- So much talk at the Coliseum before Monday night's contest centered on the past, when all the A's really wanted to do was make good on the present in an effort to ensure themselves of a contending future.

They took in all of the questions about their playoff-clinching performance over the Rangers last year, having to reflect on Games 160, 161 and 162, with Texas coming into town for the first time since those fateful days. The A's responded simply by beating the Rangers again, this time in Game 40.

It was a 5-1 decision that saw the best out of righty AJ Griffin, who tied a season high with eight strikeouts in seven dominant innings.

Moss had struck out in his previous six at-bats.
