ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) The Texas Rangers' beleaguered bullpen delivered Wednesday night to help salvage the final game of a disappointing homestand.
Four relievers worked 4 1/3 innings, the only baserunner reaching on a throwing error, as the Rangers beat the Oakland Athletics 4-2. Isiah Kiner-Falefa hit a go-ahead single in the fifth to help stop Oakland's four-game winning streak.
Jesse Chavez (1-0) retired all four batters he faced in relief of starter Doug Fister. Keone Kela pitched a perfect ninth for his fourth save of the season.
