OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Texas Rangers wrapped up a three-game sweep of the Oakland Athletics with a 3-0 victory yesterday. Martin Perez pitched his second consecutive shutout to extend his scoreless innings streak to 26. The Rangers moved a half-game ahead of Oakland in first place in the AL West with their first sweep of the A's since August 2011.

MAVERICKS-SPURS
Mavs roll past Spurs 113-92, even series at 1-1
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Monta Ellis scored 21 points and the Dallas Mavericks rolled to a 113-92 victory over San Antonio on Wednesday night, snapping a 10-game skid against the Spurs and evening their first-round series at a game apiece.
Shawn Marion scored 20 points, Dirk Nowitzki added 16, Devin Harris had 18 and Jose Calderon 12 for Dallas, which never trailed after the opening minutes of the second quarter.
Manu Ginobili had 27 points, Tony Parker added 12 and Tim Duncan 11 for the Spurs.
Dallas didn't relent in Game 2 after blowing a 10-point lead in the final eight minutes of the series opener. San Antonio's ineptness had as much to do with tying the series, however. The Spurs averaged 14.4 turnovers during the regular season, but had 15 with 3 minutes left in the first half. They finished with 22 turnovers, which resulted in 33 points for the Mavericks.

DALLAS (AP) — The Stars beat the top-seeded Anaheim Ducks 4-2 yesterday in Game 4 of the best-of-seven series that is now even.

Rangers rally from early deficit to beat Athletics
UNDATED (AP) — Donnie Murphy lined a go-ahead single up the middle with one out in the eighth inning, and the Texas Rangers rallied from an early three-run deficit to beat the Oakland Athletics 4-3 on Monday night.
Sean Doolittle allowed a leadoff double to Kevin Kouzmanoff and Mitch Moreland sacrificed him to third before Murphy's hit. Murphy and Kouzmanoff are both former A's players.
Neal Cotts pitched one inning for the win, then gave way to Alexi Ogando before Joakim Soria finished for his fourth save.
Brandon Moss homered and Coco Crisp hit a two-run single as the A's went ahead 3-0 in the second, but they couldn't hold the lead.
Oakland swept a weekend series against Houston and lost for only the second time in nine games and third time in 14.

Dallas captain Jamie Benn skated out of the penalty box to score late in the first period, and 19-year-old rookie Valeri Nichushkin added a goal for the Stars in Game 3 of the best-of-seven series. The top-seeded Ducks won each of the first two games at home, both one-goal results.
Game 4 is Wednesday night.
Lehtonen, who held up through five Anaheim power plays, had a kick save near the end of one of those in the final minute of the first period. That came right before Benn came out of the penalty box and skated toward the other end for the winning goal.

ASTROS-MARINERS
Dominguez homers to lead Astros over Mariners
SEATTLE (AP) — Matt Dominguez homered and drove in three runs, Dallas Keuchel struck out a season-high eight and the Houston Astros broke a seven-game skid with a 7-2 win over the Seattle Mariners on Monday.
It is the seventh straight loss for Seattle, which is the longest active streak in the majors.
The Astros took advantage of an error by Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager in the sixth inning to score four unearned runs off Felix Hernandez and break a 2-all tie.
Hernandez took the major league lead with 43 strikeouts after recording four, but was unable to avoid his first loss of the season after shaky defense put the right-hander in a tough situation in the sixth.
Keuchel deftly navigated the Mariners for six innings, allowing six hits and a walk, but just two runs.

DUCKS-ROBIDAS HURT
Robidas breaks leg again in return to Dallas
DALLAS (AP) — Anaheim Ducks defenseman Stephane Robidas has broken his right leg in an eerie replay of his last game in Dallas when he still played for the Stars.
Robidas had to be helped off the ice after his right leg bent awkwardly when a sliding Ryan Garbutt of Dallas undercut him and knocked him to the ice early in the second period in Game 3 of a first-round series Monday night.
The team said the latest fracture was just above the one he sustained Nov. 29 when Dallas was playing Chicago. He was traded to the Ducks in March.
Stars fans cheered for the 37-year-old Robidas, chanting "Robi, Robi!" as he left the ice. He was transported to a hospital.
Robidas was on Dallas' previous playoff team six years ago.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Leonys Martin had a game-winning RBI single in the ninth inning as the Texas Rangers scored two unearned runs in a two-out rally against Fernando Rodney, beating the Seattle Mariners 3-2 on Wednesday night in a game that started as a battle of aces.
Rodney retired the first two in the ninth before Kevin Kouzmanoff's single that ricocheted off the glove of sliding shortstop Brad Miller and dribbled into the outfield. Mitch Moreland drew a walk before pinch-hitter Donnie Murphy's grounder was fielded by Miller, whose toss to second base was high and allowed Moreland to slide in safely.
Martin had the winner after Rodney's wild pitch allowed the tying run to score.
Mariners ace Felix Hernandez struck out nine and had retired 10 in a row before Martin's leadoff triple in the eighth ended the big right-hander's night. Yu Darvish struck out eight in seven innings for the Rangers.

The Rangers said Saunders had persistent pain after "he started to ramp it up" during his session Wednesday. He will try another bullpen session in a few days.
Right-hander Daniel McCutchen, designated for assignment Monday, cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Round Rock.
