A's lose fifth straight at home, shut out again by Texas

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The Oakland Athletics returned from an impressive, winning trip, and manager Bob Melvin hoped that would create momentum heading into his club's final homestand of 2016.

Instead, the A's lost a fifth straight at the Coliseum and left Melvin reflecting Saturday on previous seasons when the ballpark had a vibe, fans were into it and they showed up carrying signs.

Elvis Andrus hit a pair of two-run homers for the newly crowned AL West champion Texas Rangers and Oakland was shut out for the second straight day, losing 5-0 behind rookie Raul Alcantara.
