Rangers split with A's, at Halo's on Friday

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Brandon Hicks led off the bottom of the ninth with a towering home run to center for his first major league clout, lifting the Oakland Athletics to a 4-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Wednesday.

Hicks connected off Michael Kirkman (0-1) for Oakland’s majors-leading ninth walkoff win. He became the fourth player in franchise history to hit a game-ending homer for his first career longball and the second this year — joining Derek Norris, who did it June 25 against San Francisco.

Josh Reddick hit a tying two-run double with two outs in the seventh to help the A’s salvage a two-game split with the AL West-leading Rangers.
