Rangers beat A’s in 10 innings

Arlington, TX (SportsNetwork.com) – Rougned Odor’s bases-loaded single plated
Shin-Soo Choo with the winning run in the 10th inning to give the Texas
Rangers an 8-7 victory over the Oakland Athletics.

Shin-Soo Choo doubled to right field. Robinson Chirinos and Carlos Peguero
both walked. R.J. Alvarez then replaced Ryan Cook (0-2) on the mound. Odor’s
ground ball deflected off the glove of a diving Marcus Semien and into center
field to plate Choo.

Josh Reddick’s three-run homer capped a six-run seventh inning to give the A’s
a 7-3 advantage, but Oakland’s bullpen failed to hold the lead.

Drew Pomeranz threw the first 5 1/3 innings for the A’s, while Nick Martinez
went the first six-plus frames for the Rangers.
