Matt Olson homers again, A’s beat Texas 4-1
SFGate -

For the Rangers, who came into the A's final homestand of the season still in the hunt for the American League's second wild-card spot, the timing couldn't worse.

In this series, Texas is facing one of baseball's hottest sluggers in Matt Olson and one of the hottest clubs not named Cleveland. Friday, Olson, Oakland's rookie first baseman, hammered his sixth homer in seven games to help the A's to a 4-1 victory, their fifth win in a row and 12th in the past 15 games.
