Khris Davis Homers Twice As A’s beat AL-Best Rangers 5-2

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Khris Davis homered twice, giving him 40 for the season, and the Oakland Athletics beat Texas 5-2 on Sunday to keep the Rangers from moving closer to the AL West title.

Davis is the first A’s player to hit 40 homers since Jason Giambi had 43 in 2000. Davis has 10 homers in 15 games against the Rangers.

With two weeks left in the regular season, the magic number for the AL-leading Rangers (88-62) to clinch the division title remained at five games. Seattle and Houston, who were playing against each other Sunday, started the day tied for second in the AL West.

While already guaranteed consecutive losing seasons for the first time since 2007-09, the A’s (66-83) won two of three in Texas to wrap up a 6-1 road trip in which they scored 65 runs.
