A's try to stay in the race, beat Rangers 6-2

Coco Crisp homered, hit two sacrifice flies and scored twice to back 10-game winner Gio Gonzalez, and the Oakland Athletics beat the first-place Texas Rangers 6-2 on Saturday.
Mark Ellis also had a sacrifice fly as Oakland quickly jumped on
former A's ace Rich Harden. The A's snapped Texas' three-game
winning streak and pulled within 8½ games of the Rangers in the AL
West race.
Gonzalez (10-7) reached double digits in victories for the first
time in parts of three major league seasons. The left-hander
allowed four hits in seven shutout innings, struck out two and
walked three.
Taylor Teagarden homered off Jerry Blevins to start the eighth
for the Rangers' first run.
