Chirinos, Odor Lead Rangers Over A's 7-5
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Robinson Chirinos and Rougned Odor both homered twice as the Texas Rangers rallied from a five-run deficit to defeat the Oakland Athletics 7-5 on Wednesday night.
Texas has homered 17 times in the first six games of a 10-game road trip.
The A's lost for the ninth time in 11 games.
Three of Chirinos' four homers on the season have come in the last two days. Chirinos hit a solo homer off A's reliever John Axford (3-2) in the top of the seventh inning that broke a 5-5 tie.
Texas trailed 5-0 in the sixth when Chirinos started a five-run rally with a leadoff homer off starter Sonny Gray. Odor's two-run homer off Gray tied the game. He added a solo shot — his 12th — in the eighth off Sean Doolittle.
