Athletics finish off 3-game sweep of Rangers with 6-3 win

AP Sports Writer

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Sonny Gray won his fifth consecutive start at Texas, Josh Reddick drove in three runs and the Oakland Athletics completed a three-game series sweep with a 6-3 victory Thursday.

Reddick had a two-run single with two outs in the seventh immediately after Ben Zobrist drew a bases-loaded walk off Sam Freeman to break a 3-3 tie. Reddick's sac fly an inning earlier had tied the game.

Gray (9-3) struck out seven and walked one over six innings, improving to 5-0 with a 0.96 ERA in his five road starts against the Rangers. The right-hander had allowed only one run in 31 1-3 innings the previous four starts, including two shutouts last season.

Oakland has won nine of its past 11 games, and is headed home for a weekend series against the Royals.

This version corrects that Gray walked only one batter.
