A’s continue winning ways, take series against Rangers

The Oakland Athletics won their second-straight series by beating the Texas Rangers on Sunday, 5-2.

Khris Davis connected for two home runs, including his 40th of the year, and the A’s took advantage of a sloppy Colby Lewis outing.

Ross Detwiler lasted 5.1 innings against his former team, allowing a pair of runs on five hits and three walks. The Oakland bullpen took it from there and provided 3.2 shutout frames.

The A’s drew five walks from Lewis, the Texas starter.

Oakland has won six of their last seven and return home for a three-game against the Houston Astros that begins today. colby lewisKhris DavisMLBOakland A'sOakland Athleticsross detwilerTexas Rangers
