OAKLAND Justin Smoak Jersey , Calif. (AP) — Athletics rookie Ramon Laureano has barely been in the majors for a month, and he’s making quite an impression.Laureano hit two home runs, Marcus Semien also went deep and Oakland beat the Texas Rangers 8-4 on Friday night.Oakland got its fourth win in five games overall and seventh in eight against Texas. The A’s are 30-15 since the All-Star break.The A’s remain 3 ½ games behind first-place Houston in the AL West and 3 ½ back of the New York Yankees for the top AL wild card. They moved 6 ½ games ahead of Seattle for the second wild card.Laureano’s multihomer game was the second of his short career. The 24-year-old center fielder homered twice against the Rangers on Aug. 20. He’s hit five home runs through his first 29 games.Laureano is the first player in franchise history with two multihomer games in the first 30 games of their career.“That is very impressive based on the fact that you’ve been running (Mark) McGwires and (Jose) Cansecos and Khris Davis and Reggie Jacksons and all those guys through this organization,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said. “It means he’s off to a nice start.”Laureano homered leading off against Yovani Gallardo (8-4). Gallardo gave up five runs, six hits and three walks in 4 1/3 innings.Laureano added an opposite field shot to right off Adrian Sampson that started a three-run sixth in which the A’s broke open a 5-2 game.“It’s pretty cool,” Laureano said. “I just want to focus and keep moving forward. All those accolades, I will reflect on in the offseason. I just want to keep moving forward.”Semien hit his 12th home run off Gallardo in a four-run second inning.Texas lost for the eighth time in 11 games.Joey Gallo was 3 for 4 with a home run, a double and three RBIs.The Rangers trailed 5-0 in the fourth when Gallo hit a two-run homer — his 35th — off Chris Bassitt.The Rangers had their chances. They left the bases loaded in the seventh and runners at second and third in the eighth. They were 3 for 12 with runners in scoring position.“This is a solid (A’s) bullpen,” Rangers manager Jeff Banister said. “They threw all their guys at us today with the exception of (Lou) Trivino. I loved the at-bats that our guys put together. We continue to battle like that we’re going to break through.”Yusmeiro Petit (7-3) pitched two innings of shutout relief. He was among seven pitchers the A’s used behind Liam Hendricks, who started and worked a scoreless first inning.FOR OPENERSThe A’s used a relief pitcher to start a game for the third time in the last week with Hendricks pitching ahead of Bassitt, who pitched three innings. “It’s a product of losing as many starters as we have,” Melvin said.Manager Jeff Banister said he’ll likely deploy the same strategy this weekend, likely on Sunday with Jeffrey Springs ahead of Ariel Jurado.OAKLAND’S UNBEATEN STREAKThe A’s are a win away from extending their streak of unbeaten series to 13 http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-curtis-granderson-jersey , which would be an Oakland record. The A’s were 10-0-2 in series going into the Texas set.TRAINER’S ROOMRangers: OF/1B Ryan Rua (back muscle spasms) did running and hitting drills Friday. Banister said he’d have a better idea of his playing status by the end of the weekend.Athletics: LHP Brett Anderson (strained left forearm) will throw three 15-pitch simulated innings with breaks in between Saturday. If all goes well, Anderson could get a start on the team’s upcoming road trip, which starts Monday. … LHP Sean Manaea (left shoulder impingement) hasn’t resumed baseball activities since going on the DL on Aug. 26 and is unlikely to pitch again this season. … RHP Andrew Triggs (right arm nerve irritation) was shut down after experiencing symptoms of an injury that landed him on the DL on May 18.UP NEXTLHP Mendez (1-1, 5.59 ERA) has no record in three appearances against Oakland in which he’s given up three earned runs in seven innings. RHP Edwin Jackson (5-3, 2.91) is 0-1 with a 9.35 ERA in two starts against Texas this season. DENVER (AP) — Miles Mikolas had some pitches he’d rather have back. His swing was a keeper.Mikolas and Tyler O’Neill each homered and the St. Louis Cardinals leaned on their bullpen to withstand a Colorado rally and beat the Rockies 7-5 Friday night for their fourth straight win.O’Neill also had an RBI double and Kolten Wong added three hits and a sacrifice fly for the Cardinals in a game between teams in the thick of their respective division races and running 1-2 in the NL wild-card race. It was also St. Louis’ ninth win in a row on the road.“(Mikolas) hit one earlier in the year and we knew he was going to probably run into another one at some point,” said Bud Norris, who got three outs for his 27th save, capping 4 1/3 innings of scoreless relief by the Cardinals’ bullpen. “Obviously, that swing helped us win a ball game and definitely was doing your part on the offensive side, too.”The Rockies pulled within two runs with a five-run fifth that featured a two-run drive by Charlie Blackmon and a solo shot by Nolan Arenado, both off Mikolas, who helped St. Louis take a 7-0 lead by hitting a two-run homer as part of a four-run second.Mikolas had stranded five base runners over the first four innings but could not get out of the fifth.He was relieved by Chasen Shreve after Carlos Gonzalez scored from third on Ian Desmond’s fielder’s choice and Ryan McMahon hit a two-out RBI single that drove in Desmond, who had reached third on second baseman Wong’s throwing error.“They got hold of two bad breaking balls Aaron Sanchez Jersey , but other than that, I thought all the other contact that inning was pretty soft, a couple bloopers, seeing-eye singles stuff, like that,” Mikolas said. “I’ll beat myself up over those breaking balls but other than that they got a couple of hits that weren’t so good.”Besides, he can take some solace in the difference his home run made in the game.“I’ve got the juice right now for our pitching staff, so that’s nice. That’s something that will help me go to bed tonight,” said Mikolas, also tipping his cap to the bullpen for picking him up.Carlos Martinez (7-6) picked up the victory with 1 2/3 innings of hitless relief.Norris gave up a two-out double to Ryan McMahon and walked pinch-hitter Chris Iannetta before retiring D.J. LeMahieu on a fielder’s choice for the final out.“The game got ugly earlier, but we didn’t give up,” Gonzalez said. “We put some runs (up). We scored five that inning to put us back in the game. But they also pitched well. Their bullpen came in and shut us down.”Leading off the second, O’Neill drove a 1-2 offering from Antonio Senzatela (4-4) deep into the left-field bleachers for his fifth home run of the season http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-curtis-granderson-jersey , marking the 16th straight game in which the Cardinals homered. The streak is the longest since St. Louis connected in a club-record 25 straight games in 2016.Jedd Gyorko worked a one-out walk and Wong singled before Senzatela struck out Harrison Bader. But after Gyorko scored from third on a passed ball, Mikolas homered over the wall in straightaway center for his second of the season. The right-hander also homered for his first big league hit April 2 at Milwaukee.“He got the ball up and they made him pay,” Rockies manager Bud Black said of Senzatela. “He didn’t really have any consistent secondary pitches tonight. Probably too many mistakes and just really couldn’t string any pitches together all night.”The Cardinals added three runs in the fifth, moving out to a 7-0 lead on run-scoring doubles by Gyorko and O’Neill and a sacrifice fly by Wong.TRAINER’S ROOMCardinals: RHP Michael Wacha threw 3 2/3 scoreless innings Thursday night in his second rehab start for Class A Palm Beach against Fort Myers. He’s expected to throw a bullpen session Sunday before making a third rehab start on Tuesday, most likely at Class AA Springfield. Wacha went on the 10-day disabled list June 21 with a left oblique strain. “He’s in the conversation to come back and pitch in early September but what day that looks like — he’s not there yet,” interim manager Mike Shildt said.UP NEXTCardinals: RHP John Gant (5-5, 3.76 ERA) has posted a 2.30 ERA over his last three starts spanning 15 2/3 innings. He is making his first career appearance against the Rockies.Rockies: RHP German Marquez (11-9, 4.42 ERA) is set to make his third career start against the Cardinals but first in more than a year. He won his previous outings against St. Louis, both at Coors Field, going 2-0 with a 2.53 ERA over a combined 10 2/3 innings.
