OAKLAND — Sam Fuld scored the winning run on a slide into home to just beat the throw with one out in the ninth on Josh Reddick's grounder, and the Oakland Athletics snapped a four-game losing streak with a 5-4 win against the Texas Rangers on Wednesday night.
Fuld hit a one-out single off Keone Kela (4-3) for just his eighth hit in 80 at-bats and stole second. Fuld advanced on Billy Burns' infield single and shortstop Elvis Andrus held the ball rather than throwing to third.
Reddick followed with a sharp grounder that second baseman Adam Rosales fielded and threw home just barely too late. It marked Reddick's fifth career game-ending RBI.
Oakland's comeback spoiled a 10-strikeout night by Texas starter Yovani Gallardo.
Billy Butler hit a tying single off Tanner Scheppers in the eighth after Oakland scored another run on third baseman Joey Gallo's throwing error.
Tyler Clippard (1-3) pitched a perfect ninth for the win.
