things were looking grim for the a's in houston. lifeless three runs and then the eruption. in his fifth start for the a's really struggled in this game. hernandez doubles to left and singleton scores. he leaves after going six and two-thirds. the a's are down in the 9th. he delivers a base hit. suddenly it is 4-3. two down and cespedes and a little blooper. is that going to fall? yes. we are tied at four. a batter later and brandon moss, liner through the shift.

mark davis is looking at san antonio. a source close to the raider situation told me today that the raiders see san antonio as a real possibility and not just leverage to get a deal going here. that facility lacks enough luxury suites and then davis would still have to get another stadium built there and the cowboys, texans and the nfl would have to approve such a move. and tonight jerry jones said he deeply values the san antonio fans who root for the cowboys. in other words, raiders stay off my lawn. >> thanks, larry. back in a moment.
