Athletics Get Road Win, 7-1
Oakland rode a fine outing from starter Shelby Miller to victory over the Texas Rangers at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. The final score was 7-1. Oakland is last in the American League West with a record of 71-87.

It could have been a different outcome for Oakland, had it not been for Joe McAteer, the 25-year old catcher . McAteer contributed a 2-run home run in the top of the sixth inning to put Oakland up, 4-1.

"We took advantage of our opportunities," McAteer told the Oakland Citizen. "It's as simple as that."
