News: Kazmir held the Rangers to two runs -- one earned -- on four hits over seven innings in a win Friday night.
Impact: The victory was his 15th of the season, and it was another outing where he displayed good control (5:0 K:BB). After a very shaky start against the Phillies his last time out, Kazmir took a big step back in the right direction for a potential postseason run, should the A's secure a place in the final days of the regular season.

News: Kazmir allowed six runs on 11 hits and a walk while striking out nine in 5.1 innings in the Athletics' 8-6 win over the Phillies on Sunday.
Impact: Kazmir has struggled in his last two starts, allowing 12 runs and 20 hits in 9.2 innings. Four of his last six starts has resulted in six or more runs. His ERA, which was 2.53 at the start of August, is now 3.63 after the start. It's not a promising lead-up to the postseason.
