ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Cleanup hitter Matt Olson connected for a grand slam off Luís Garcia after the Texas opener walked the bases loaded to start the game and the Oakland Athletics beat the Rangers 10-6. The AL West-leading A’s moved a season-high 13 games over .500 and reduced their magic number for clinching a playoff spot to single digits. Mike Fiers won for the third time in three starts against last-place Texas. The Rangers opened the roof of their new $1.2 billion stadium for the second time.
