    Red Sox beat Reds 5-4, reduce A.L. East magic number to three

    OAKLAND, Calif. -- Bruce Maxwell of the Oakland Athletics became the first major league baseball player to kneel during the national anthem Saturday, pulling the sport into a polarizing protest movement that has been criticized harshly by President Donald Trump. Before a home game against the Texas Rangers, Maxwell dropped to a knee just outside Oakland's dugout, adopting a protest started by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in response to police treatment of blacks. The 26-year-old rookie catcher pressed his right hand against his heart, and teammates stood in a line next to him. Teammate Mark Canha, who is white, put his right hand on one of Maxwell's shoulders, and the

    Instant Analysis: A's sweep Rangers in Oakland, win seventh straight

    OAKLAND — If the finish line wasn’t approaching so quickly, it’d be interesting to see what the A’s might be capable of. They rolled to their seventh consecutive win, and their second three-game sweep in a row, with Sunday’s 8-1 victory over the Texas Rangers, who had their Wild Card hopes dealt a crushing blow over their three-day stay in the East Bay.

    As tumble in AL standings continue, Rangers set new, historic low in road-hitting  

    After one final little lurch towards contention earlier in the week, Oakland snuffed the Rangers hopes out with a three-game sweep in the season's final road series of the year. Fittingly, the offense failed. The Rangers scored two runs in the series, one Friday and one in Sunday's 8-1 loss. They were hitless with runners in scoring position for the weekend, though they didn't even have an RISP at-bat Sunday. They went 21 innings from Friday until the seventh inning Sunday without a run. It was the season's longest shutout streak. And, when it was all done, the Rangers finished the year with a .224 road batting average. It is the worst by an AL team since the DH came into existence in 1973. Their
