Oakland Athletics (12-11)

Semien's tiebreaking homer in 9th sends A's past Rangers 9-4

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Marcus Semien picks his spots to be aggressive. Leading off the ninth inning for the Oakland Athletics in a tie game was a perfect time.

Semien homered on the first pitch of the ninth, and the surging A's added five more runs after that in a 9-4 victory over the Texas Rangers on Monday night. Oakland has a winning record for the first time since it won the season opener.

"It's really early, but you know we started off slow, so that means we must be doing OK right now," Semien said.
