OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Matt Olson homered to back Mike Fiers’ first win of the season and the Oakland Athletics beat the Texas Rangers 6-4 on for their sixth straight victory and a series sweep. Khris Davis added a two-run single, Mark Canha had an RBI single and Stephen Piscotty a sacrifice fly as the balanced, first-place A’s kept rolling at the right time with the rival Houston Astros coming to town next. Anderson Tejeda hit a two-run homer in his major league debut, chasing Fiers in the seventh inning and pulling the Rangers within 5-4. Oakland’s Sean Murphy countered with an RBI single in the bottom of the inning.
