A's overcome disputed call to beat Rangers 5-4

Kila Ka'aihue had a tiebreaking single in the 10th inning, and the Oakland A's bounced back from a disputed call on squeeze play that cost them the lead to beat the Texas Rangers 5-4 Thursday.

Ka'aihue's single off Mike Adams (0-2) drove in Jonny Gomes, who had three hits. Josh Reddick's 10th homer off Alexi Ogando made it 4-all in the seventh.

Ryan Cook (1-0) escaped a ninth-inning jam and has pitched 19 2-3 scoreless innings this season, most among AL relievers. Brian Fuentes recorded his third save.

Mitch Moreland homered twice for Texas.

Oakland fell behind 4-3 in the sixth when Craig Gentry scored from third on a squeeze bunt that Brandon McCarthy thought he caught. A's manager Bob Melvin was ejected for arguing the call.
