por Jamison Dunagan (2020-10-22)

Matt Olson and Marcus Semien each had two-run home runs, and Stephen Piscotty ripped a three-run double to help propel the Oakland Athletics to a 10-3 win over the Texas Rangers on Tuesday in Arlington, Texas, in the second of a four-game series between the two American League West teams.

Oakland, whose 21 wins are the most in the American League, has won five of its past seven games.
The loss was the ninth in 10 outings for the Rangers; Texas' lone win in that stretch came on Monday in the opener of this series.

Sean Manaea (2-2) allowed three runs on six hits in five innings to garner the victory. He struck out three and did not walk a batter in his 86-pitch outing.

Texas took a lead in the second inning on Isiah Kiner-Falefa's RBI single but the Athletics tied the game in the third when Tony Kemp scored on a wild pitch by Rangers starter Kyle Gibson.

Olson's homer came in the fourth and gave the Athletics a 3-1 lead.
Semien, who had three hits in the game and has six in this series, blasted his round-tripper an inning later to push Oakland's advantage to 5-1.

Texas clawed back to within 5-3 in the fifth on Nick Solak's two-out, two-run, bases-loaded single.

But Oakland ??? added five runs in the seventh when Robbie Grossman walked with the bases loaded and Mark Canha was then hit by a pitch.

Piscotty's three-run, two-out double off reliever Jimmy Herget then blew open the game.

Jonah Heim, who was called up on Monday, had his first Major League hit, a single in the seventh. He also had a walk in four plate appearances

Gibson (1-3) took the loss after surrendering seven runs, all earned, in 6 1/3 innings of work.
He struck out six and walked two before leaving in favor of Ian Gibaut, who retired just one batter and was responsible for the runs allowed by Herget.
