Rangers make it 8 straight wins against A's

David Murphy hit a tiebreaking RBI single
with two outs in the ninth inning, and the Texas Rangers beat the
Oakland Athletics 7-6 on Sunday for a three-game series sweep.
Mitch Moreland hit a sacrifice fly, Michael Young and Mike
Napoli each drew bases-loaded walks against former Ranger Rich
Harden and first-place Texas extended its winning streak in the
rivalry to eight games. The Rangers (69-52) also moved a
season-best 17 games over .500.
Mike Adams (1-1) pitched a 1-2-3 eighth for the victory, then
Neftali Feliz finished for his 23rd save in 29 chances as Texas won
its fourth straight road game heading into a key four-game series
with the Angels in Anaheim.
