Kazmir ends 9-start winless streak as A's beat Rangers 7-0

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Scott Kazmir allowed one hit in eight innings to end a nine-start winless streak and lead the Oakland Athletics over the Texas Rangers 7-0 Thursday.

Kazmir (3-4) retired 13 of his first 14 batters around a second-inning walk by Adam Rosales and didn't allow a hit until Elvis Andrus' one-out single to center in the fifth.

Texas' only other runner was Prince Fielder, who walked leading off the seventh.

Kazmir struck out six and threw 105 pitches. Evan Scribner needed nine pitches in a perfect ninth that completed the one-hitter.

Kazmir defeated Texas and Houston in his first two starts of the season but had been 0-4 in nine outings since beating the Astros on April 13, although he had a 3.78 ERA in that stretch.
