Gio Gonzalez won his third consecutive
start and the Oakland Athletics cut their AL West deficit to 7½
games with an 8-2 victory Sunday, taking two of three in their
series with the division-leading Texas Rangers.
Mark Ellis and Kevin Kouzmanoff homered for the A's off Colby
Lewis (9-11), while Cliff Pennington snapped out of a 2-for-24
slide with two singles and a sacrifice squeeze bunt.
Gonzalez (12-8) left with a 7-2 lead after throwing 65 of his 95
pitches for strikes in six innings on another hot day in Texas. The
left-hander is 7-1 with a 2.10 ERA in 10 day games this season.
