Suzuki drives in game winner as A's beat Texas

Kurt Suzuki hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the seventh inning, Trevor Cahill allowed six hits through eight and the Oakland Athletics beat the first-place Texas Rangers 3-2 on Sunday.
Rajai Davis and Coco Crisp also drove in runs for the A's, who
won for the eighth time in their last 10 home games. Josh Hamilton
and Nelson Cruz drove in runs for the Rangers, who have lost four
of their last seven.
Cahill (12-4) won his fifth straight against the Rangers despite
allowing two unearned runs in the sixth. He struck out three and
did not walk a batter.
Darren Oliver (0-1) started the seventh, and gave up a single to
Chad Pennington and an RBI double to Crisp before leaving the game.
Texas starter Colby Lewis failed to win his 10th game for a
fourth consecutive start, although the Rangers were leading when he
was replaced. He gave up a run on three hits over six innings,
walking three and striking out seven.
