Davis homers, drives in 5 and A’s roll over Rangers 14-5

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Khris Davis homered and drove in five runs, Marcus Semien and Jake Smolinski each had three hits and the Oakland Athletics pounded first-place Texas 14-5 on Monday night, hours after the Rangers put Yu Darvish on the disabled list.

The A’s snapped a seven-game losing streak on Sunday, then beat a Texas team that had won eight of its previous 10 games.

Davis drilled his 15th homer off Cesar Ramos (1-3) in the bottom of the fifth.

Ramos started in place of Darvish, who had been scheduled to start this game before experiencing shoulder discomfort. Darvish has made three starts since returning from Tommy John surgery.

Daniel Coulombe (1-0) allowed two runs in 1 2/3 innings in relief of starter Sean Manaea, who left after 4 1/3 innings with a strained left forearm.
