YANKEES 2, ATHLETICS 1

NEW YORK — Masahiro Tanaka tamed the highest-scoring team in the majors and New York stopped a four-game skid, beating Oakland and ending the Athletics' five-game winning streak.

Facing the A's for the first time, Tanaka (9-1) got an early jolt when John Jaso homered as the second batter in the game. But that was the only run Tanaka allowed in six innings, and he left with an AL-leading 2.02 ERA.

David Robertson worked the ninth for his 13th save in 15 chances, helped by a lucky bounce.

Stephen Vogt singled with one out and pinch-runner Craig Gentry stole second. Alberto Callaspo followed with a hard grounder that deflected off Robertson's leg, and first baseman Mark Teixeira corralled the carom and flipped to the pitcher covering the bag for an out. Pinch-hitter Derek Norris looked at strike three for the final out.

RANGERS 8, ORIOLES 6

ARLINGTON, Texas — Rougned Odor had a leadoff single in the seventh and scored the tiebreaking run with the help of two errors by Baltimore Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy and Texas avoided a three-game sweep with a win.

The Rangers blew an early 5-0 lead, but their three-run seventh started when No. 9 batter Odor had an infield single off reliever Brian Matusz (2-2) and moved up on throwing error by Hardy.

Odor came home when Hardy misplayed a grounder hit by Elvis Andrus to make it 6-5. Alex Rios and Chris Jimenez then added consecutive RBI singles off Preston Guilmet, the fifth Baltimore pitcher.

Hardy, an All-Star for the second time last season, also had a throwing error in the fourth for the first three-error game in his career.

ASTROS 8, ANGELS 5

HOUSTON — Jose Altuve and George Springer drove in two runs each during Houston's four-run eighth inning as the Astros pulled away for a win over Los Angeles.

Altuve had two hits, including a two-run double in the eighth, and Springer finished with three RBIs for the Astros.

Brad Peacock (2-4) allowed three runs and six hits with a strikeout in five innings.

Chad Qualls earned his sixth save.

Mike Trout had two hits, including a double and a triple, and Chris Iannetta had three hits for the Angels, who have lost five of their past six games.

Tyler Skaggs (4-4) allowed four runs and six hits with four strikeouts in five innings.

    Experience comes from encountering the same things in the same ways over and over again. Oklahoma’s Geneo Grissom and Julian Wilson have that at defensive end and nickleback in bunches.
    However, both will be seeing new things when practice begins. Grissom is moving to outside linebacker. Wilson will be getting a look at cornerback as his senior season begins

    The NCAA once cracked down on colleges that went too far luring top prospects, then it targeted teams that lathered players with special treatment. That was until the NCAA's get-tough approach backfired, rendering it ineffective and creating an opportunity for those who want to play dirty.
