Gray wins 6th straight, A's 4 HRs beat Texas

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Sonny Gray won his sixth straight decision, helped when the Oakland Athletics hit four home runs in a six-batter span to beat the Texas Rangers 5-1 Saturday night.

The A's trailed 1-0 when John Jaso hit a two-run drive with two outs in the sixth inning. Yoenis Cespedes followed with his 17th home run.

Josh Donaldson led off the seventh with another home run and Josh Reddick connected two batters later.

Gray (12-3) allowed seven hits over 6 2-3 innings. He didn't give up more than one earned run in any of his five July starts.

Jaso and Cespedes homered off Nick Tepesch (3-7).

Tepesch, who threw 99 pitches in a start last Sunday and then made a relief appearance two days later in a 14-inning loss, exited with a 2-1 count to Donaldson because of soreness in his left knee.

Tepesch had this start pushed back a day.
