Lynn Fans 10, Odor Homers as Rangers Defeat Athletics

The busy A’s are in the midst of a frenetic few days the American League West leaders knew were coming, and manager Bob Melvin is hoping for a minimum of break-even baseball.

A loss in Texas sent Oakland on its way with that plan intact.

Ace Lance Lynn struck out a season-high 10 in seven innings, Rougned Odor hit a tiebreaking three-run homer and the last-place Rangers beat the Athletics 6-3 on Sunday to split a four-game series.
