Rajai Davis scored the first run then matched a career best with four RBIs for the Oakland Athletics, who delivered another blow to the Texas Rangers' playoff chances with a 6-1 victory Tuesday night.
Texas is 1-4 on its homestand and 5½ games behind AL wild-card
leader Boston. The Rangers have their largest deficit for a playoff
spot all season with only 18 games left.
David Murphy's leadoff homer in the fourth snapped the Rangers'
22-inning scoreless streak, their longest in five years, but they
were down 4-1 and didn't score again.
Craig Breslow (7-7) worked two scoreless innings in relief for
the last-place Athletics, who have won seven of nine.
