Michael Young scored his first three times up and light-hitting Taylor Teagarden hit a two-run home run,
sending the Texas Rangers to a 7-4 victory over the Oakland
Athletics on Thursday night.
The Rangers won the series against the A's and closed out a
homestand against division rivals by going 5-2. They added 3½ games
to their lead in the AL West and head back on the road 8½ games
clear of the A's.
Texas opened the day by putting All-Star second baseman Ian
Kinsler on the disabled list, calling up rookie Mitch Moreland to
perhaps become their left-handed hitting first baseman and then
traded two pitching prospects to Florida for Jorge Cantu, who is
likely to be their right-handed hitting first baseman.
