    OAKLAND http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-ryan-mcmahon-jersey , Calif. (AP) — On a rare day when Matt Olson wasn’t in the starting lineup, he still became a difference-maker.Olson homered to drive in the go-ahead run, Khris Davis hit his major league-leading 41st home run and the Oakland Athletics defeated the Texas Rangers 8-6 on Saturday for their fifth win in six games.Olson broke a 6-6 tie against Chris Martin (1-4) leading off the eighth. Olson has a career-high 25 homers, one more than last year. He entered in the seventh on what was scheduled to be a day off, and he is the only A’s player to appear in all 143 games.“I just think we’re resilient, we don’t really give up on anything,” Olson said. “If we get a lead and give it up or if it’s a tie game, everybody wants the opportunity to put us ahead and it’s just worked out that way.”Davis hit a two-run homer in the first. He has 10 homers against the Rangers this year, matching his total against Texas in 2016.Chad Pinder also homered and Matt Chapman added an RBI double in the eighth. The A’s, a big league-best 31-15 since the All-Star break, began the day a season-high 6½ games ahead of Seattle for the AL’s second wild card.Oakland (86-57) is 29 games over .500 for the first time since ending 2013 at 96-66. The A’s have won eight of their last nine games against the Rangers.Ryan Buchter (4-0) struck out Joey Gallo, his only batter, and Blake Treinen fanned two in a perfect ninth for his 37th save in 41 chances.Adrian Beltre homered twice for the Rangers, who lost for the ninth time in 12 games. At 61-81 http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/authentic-joe-jimenez-jersey , the Rangers matched their season high of 20 games under .500; they were 42-62 after a loss to the A’s on July 26.“Huge bright spot,” Rangers manager Jeff Banister said.Oakland starter Edwin Jackson allowed four runs and five hits in a season-low three innings.Davis’s homer was the only hit in four innings off 23-year-old left-hander Yohander Mendez, who was coming off his first big league win last weekend against Minnesota.Texas led 4-2 before Jed Lowrie’s two-run double in the fifth. Pinder homered against Martin Perez for a 5-4 lead in the sixth, and Stephen Piscotty hit a run-scoring double off Eddie Butler in the seventh.Beltre’s two-run homer tied the score in the eighth against Fernando Rodney. Jurickson Profar homered earlier for Texas.Oakland is a major league-best 62-0 when leading after seven innings and is 77-0 when leading after seven going back to Sept. 2 last year.“We had plenty of chances to score more runs, and we didn’t,” Beltre said.GREAT GRABRamon Laureano crashed into the center field wall making an inning-ending running catch that robbed Beltre of extra bases and an RBI with Nomar Mazara at second base in the third.“Off the bat, you’re just hoping it doesn’t go out,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said. “The next thing you know he’s crashing into the wall. Wouldn’t surprise you if the wall tipped over as hard as he plays.”The 23-year-old rookie slid in the fifth to cut off Rougned Odor’s double to the gap, preventing Shin-Soo Choo from scoring from first.SAMPSON’S STARTSeptember call-up Adrian Sampson is to start Tuesday at the Los Angeles Angels. The 26-year-old right-hander pitched one-third of an inning on Friday in his first appearance in the majors since June 18, 2016, for Seattle against Boston. Sampson will take the turn of 45-year-old Bartolo Colon, who moves to the bullpen.MAKING MOVESThe A’s plan to activate OF Nick Martini and RHP Ryan Dull on Sunday. RHP Frankie Montas is expected to be activated before Oakland opens a six-game trip that starts Tuesday in Baltimore.TRAINER’S ROOMAthletics: LHP Brett Anderson threw 45 pitches in a simulated game on Saturday. The team will evaluate his condition on Sunday, manager Bob Melvin said. Anderson could be activated for the team’s upcoming road trip.UP NEXTRangers LHP Jeffrey Springs (0-0, 2.29 ERA) will open for RHP Ariel Jurado (2-4 Miguel Cabrera Jersey , 6.00) in the series finale. RHP Trevor Cahill (6-3, 3.60) is 11-4 with a 3.07 ERA in 19 career appearances against Texas including 10 wins with the A’s, the second most against the Rangers in Oakland history. PITTSBURGH (AP) — Jon Lester wasn’t overly excited about winning for the first time in just over a month.However, Cubs manager Joe Maddon couldn’t have been happier with his performance.Lester pitched six innings and Ian Happ homered as the Chicago Cubs beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 1-0 on Thursday night.Lester (13-5) allowed five hits, struck out eight and had no walks while improving to 3-1 against the Pirates this season. His previous victory came July 15 at San Diego and he had gone 0-3 with a 10.32 ERA in five starts since the All-Star break.“This isn’t going to be like we figured out everything and I’m going to throw six scoreless (innings) every time I step out there,” Lester said. “It’s a step in the right direction, though.”Maddon was glad to have his ace find his form.“He’s a world-class kind of athlete and they want to be that way all the time,” Maddon said. “When you get away from it, it’s disturbing and you’re always looking for answers. I know he’ll rest better and this is absolutely a game to build off because he executed well. Everything was there tonight.”Steve Cishek, Carl Edwards Jr. and Pedro Strop each pitched one inning to complete the six-hitter. Strop hit David Freese with a pitch with two outs in the ninth but converted his 10th save in 13 opportunities.Happ connected with one out in the fourth inning off Ivan Nova (7-7) for his 13th home run, a drive deep into the right-center seats that was the game’s only extra-base hit. There was a fair share of cheers while Happ rounded the bases as he is from suburban Mount Lebanon, Pennsylvania.“It’s always good to come here and see my high school coach sitting in the fourth row behind the dugout,” Happ said.Chicago (70-50) increased its lead in the NL Central to 3½ games over idle Milwaukee while moving a season-high 20 games over .500. Pittsburgh (61-61) lost its fourth straight to fall to .500.Nova took his first loss since July 3 despite giving up only one run in 6 2/3 innings. The Pirates had won five of his six previous starts and he was 3-0 in that span.“Every time you lose a game, it’s tough Alan Trammell Jersey ,” Nova said. “But having a game like this and the position we are in, we need to win, we need to get Ws, especially against a team that’s ahead of us.”The Pirates’ best scoring opportunity came in the fifth inning when Josh Harrison and Adeiny Hechavarria hit consecutive two-out singles. Lester then struck out Nova, an .044 career hitter.The Cubs had runners in scoring position in the third and seventh innings but failed to convert.Chicago’s Jason Heyward had two hits.TRAINER’S ROOMCubs: RHP Yu Darvish (right triceps tendinitis/right shoulder impingement) will begin a rehab assignment Sunday with a minor league team to be determined. Signed to a $126-million, six-year contract as a free agent in February, Darvish last pitched for the Cubs on May 20 and is 1-3 with a 4.95 ERA in eight starts.Pirates: SS Jordy Mercer (strained left calf) was placed on the 10-day disabled list after being injured Wednesday during a loss at Minnesota. Hechavarria started in his place and went 2 for 2. … RHP Nick Burdi (Tommy John elbow surgery) had his rehab transferred to Triple-A Indianapolis from Double-A Altoona on Tuesday and allowed two runs in two-thirds of an inning against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.HELLO, NEWMANShortstop Kevin Newman, the Pirates’ first-round draft pick in 2015, made his major league debut when he entered on defense in the ninth inning after Hechavarria was removed for a pinch-hitter.The Pirates purchased Newman’s contract from Indianapolis before the game and recalled OF Jordan Luplow from the same club while catcher Jacob Stallings was optioned there. Right-hander Casey Sadler was designated for assignment to open a 40-man roster spot for Newman.UP NEXTCubs: LHP Cole Hamels (7-9, 4.22 ERA) makes his fourth start Friday night since being acquired from Texas in a trade.
