Rangers clinch series over A's with 4-3 win

Ian Kinsler put Texas ahead for the first time with a two-run single in the seventh and the Rangers held on for a series-clinching 4-3 victory over the AL West-leading Oakland Athletics on Thursday.

Texas pulled within a game of the Athletics by winning three times in the four-game series.

Kinsler came to the plate right after Leonys Martin's hustling infield single, getting to first base ahead of Sean Doolittle (3-2) when the pitcher was taking the toss from first baseman Brandon Moss. That loaded the bases with two outs, and Kinsler hit a full-count pitch through the middle of the infield.

The game ended when Josh Donaldson was thrown out at the plate trying to score from first on Seth Smith's single to center.
