Four home runs carry Athletics to 8-6 win over Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) The Oakland Athletics maintained their half-game lead over the Tampa Bay Rays in the race for the American League's first wild card on Saturday night despite losing their No. 1 starter in the second inning thanks to what manager Bob Melvin called their "relentless offense."

Mark Canha's two-run home run off the left-field foul pole broke a fifth-inning tie as the A's beat the Texas Rangers 8-6 on Saturday night.

The A's scored all their runs on homers. Matt Chapman (three-run homer in the third inning), Josh Phegley (two-run homer in the fourth) and Matt Olson (solo in the sixth). Oakland's 242 home runs are one short of the franchise record set in 1996.
