Recap

Vladimir Guerrero homered and had four RBIs as the Texas Rangers broke out of an offensive slump with a 10-3 victory over the host Oakland Athletics on Friday night.

Guerrero homered in the second and hit a three-run double during the Rangers’ five-run seventh inning that broke open a close game.

Texas had scored just 14 runs in seven games before breaking out against the Athletics and expanding their American League West lead to eight games with nine contests left.

Texas can clinch the division by beating Oakland on Saturday.
