OAKLAND -- Donnie Murphy homered twice, Colby Lewis overcame an uneven start to win for the first time in more than three weeks and the Texas Rangers beat the A's 14-8 on Monday night.

Michael Choice and Robinson Chirinos also homered, and Adrian Beltre drove in three runs to lead the Rangers to their fourth straight win at the Coliseum. Texas swept a three-game series in Oakland in April.

Murphy hit a two-run home run in the fourth and a solo shot in the ninth for his fourth career multi-homer game.

The Rangers, who began the night eight games behind the division-leading A's, nearly let it slip away. They led 11-3 before Oakland scored four times in the sixth and once in the eighth.

Yoenis Cespedes hit a three-run home run while Brandon Moss added his 17th for Oakland.
