COPY-Andrus, Beltre power Rangers past Athletics

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Elvis Andrus and Adrian Beltre each hit three-run homers in support of Colby Lewis' six strong and the Texas Rangers beat the Oakland Athletics 10-3 Wednesday night to take a three-game lead in the AL West Division.

Rougned Odor also homered, Mitch Moreland, Shin-Soo Choo, Will Venable drove in runs and Prince Fielder ended an 0-for-20 streak as the Rangers magic number fell to eight.

Josh Reddick and Eric Sogard homered and Carson Blair drove in a run for the A's, who lost their fourth straight. Reddick committed two errors in the same game for the first time in his career. Sogard ended a 457-at bat homerless streak.

Lewis (17-8) became the Rangers' first 17-game winner since Scott Feldman won 17 in 2009. He's already set a career high for wins.

Felix Doubront (3-3), who started the season with the Toronto Blue Jays, lasted 4 2-3 innings, allowing seven runs on eight hits. He walked two and struck out four.
