A.J. Griffin was charged with five runs -- four earned -- in 2 2/3 innings in his start Wednesday against the Rangers.

The A's bailed him out afterwards, so his record remains 7-1. That the A's failed to make grabs on two popups in the third contributed to his undoing today. They did get an out on the first one anyway, but it likely would have been a double play if it was caught.
