Athletics update

The A's beat the Texas Rangers, 6-0, on Wednesday to end their nine-game losing streak, the club's longest in nine years. Still, the A's are 11 1/2 games behind the first-place Los Angeles Angels in the American League West. They traded veteran catcher Jason Kendall to the Chicago Cubs earlier this week, an indication general manager Billy Beane could be on the verge of dismantling part of his veteran nucleus. Kurt Suzuki has been getting some starts for Oakland behind the plate. Third baseman Eric Chavez is expected to return to the A's lineup this weekend after missing three games with lower-back soreness. Haren, the starter in last week's All-Star Game, held the Orioles to one earned run in seven innings in the A's 6-5 victory on April 23.
