Athletics: Olmedo Saenz's homer gave the team eight players with at least 10 home runs, tying the Oakland record set in 1970. The A's won the season series with Boston, 6-4, winning four of six in Oakland.

Red Sox: Outfielder Darren Lewis has just two errors this season and 13 in an eight-year career.

Rangers: At 85-56, Texas is 29 games over .500 for the first time in franchise history. Juan Gonzalez easily stole his third base of the year when Indians catcher Einar Diaz missed a pitch while jumping out of his crouch. Gonzalez might have reached third had the ball not hit home plate umpire Travis Katzenmeier.

Devil Rays: Jose Canseco, who missed his fourth consecutive game because of a sore ligament in his right hand, took batting practice and may return today.
