OAKLAND, Calif. -- Theres something about Jarrod Parkers presence on the mound that is bringing out the best in the Oakland Athletics. Especially against Yu Darvish and the Texas Rangers. Parker got plenty of home-run help to pitch his way into Oaklands record book, and the surging As pulled into a tie atop the AL West with Texas by overpowering the Rangers 11-4 on Wednesday. "Im just trying to stay in the moment," Parker said. Parker (11-6) allowed two runs in six innings to extend his unbeaten streak to 18 straight starts, eclipsing Catfish Hunters Oakland mark set from June 2-Sept. 3, 1973. Parker struck out four and walked none. The 24-year-old has won his last nine decisions, the most by an As pitcher since Dan Haren won 10 in a row in 2007. He hasnt lost since May 22 at Texas. "He goes out there and shuts teams down," right fielder Brandon Moss said. "He puts the ball in play and doesnt walk anybody. When he gets in trouble, he finds a way to dig deep and get himself out of it. Thats what aces do." Moss, Daric Barton and Coco Crisp each hit two-run homers, and Josh Donaldson added a three-run drive for Oakland. The As handed Darvish (12-7) a loss in consecutive starts for the first time all season. Darvish gave up five runs -- matching a season high -- and tied a career-worst with six walks in five-plus innings. He is 1-5 with a 4.82 ERA against Oakland. Darvish also made a pointed gesture that appeared to signal catcher A.J. Pierzynski to go back behind the plate during a mound visit by pitching coach Mike Maddux. Pierzynski downplayed the incident. "He had a command issue. I went out there to calm him down. I wasnt paying attention," Pierzynski said. As opening day starter Brett Anderson, working his way back from a stress fracture in his right foot, allowed two runs in three innings for his second save. Manager Bob Melvin said hes trying to stretch out Andersons appearances to give the team the option of inserting him back into the rotation. A year after the As completed a three-game sweep over the Rangers to win the division on the final day, the AL West race is again shaping up as a tight one. Oakland has won eight of its last 10 to set up what should be a scintillating September. The teams play three more times in Texas from Sept. 13-16. "It should be fun," Donaldson said. The Rangers, just as they did a year ago, wilted in their final regular season game at the Oakland Coliseum. Darvish struggled with his command from the start, bouncing balls in front of the plate and piling up his pitch count. By the second, he had already matched a season high with four walks and had thrown 42 pitches. Moss sent his 26th home run of the season over the wall in right in the first, and Crisp drove in the first of his four RBIs in the second with a sacrifice fly. Leonys Martin hit an RBI double and Craig Gentry singled him home in the third to slice Oaklands lead to 3-2, but the Rangers blew their best chance to rally in the fifth. Shortstop Jed Lowrie bobbled Jim Adducis grounder and Martins sacrifice bunt moved both runners into scoring position. Jurickson Profar broke to the plate on Gentrys comebacker and was tagged out trying to get back to third. "It wasnt a good day is all," Ranger manager Ron Washington said. Bartons second home run of the season -- and first in Oakland since July 10, 2010 -- ended Darvishs day. Donaldsons 20th homer came later in the sixth against reliever Robbie Ross, and Crisps 18th in the eighth put Parker in a powerful position to make history. The only As starter with a longer unbeaten streak is Lefty Grove, who won 21 in a row from April 22-Aug. 19, 1931. The Hall of Famer also had 10 relief appearances during the streak, including one loss. Since dropping his first four decisions this season, Parker has only allowed more than three runs twice. "Hes been nails," Donaldson said. "You need a guy like Parker to come in every day and give us a chance to win, and thats what hes done for the majority of this year." NOTES: The Rangers batted out of order in the ninth but nobody reached base so the As never protested. ... Rangers SS Elvis Andrus missed his fourth straight game with a sore back. He said he couldve played, but with a day off Thursday, Washington wanted to give Andrus extra time to recover. ... Athletics C Derek Norris, who fractured his left big toe Aug. 21, said he feels "ready to go" and expects to be activated from the 15-day disabled list when eligible Thursday. ... The As send Sonny Gray (2-2, 2.57 ERA) to the mound against Brad Peacock (3-5, 5.98 ERA) in the opener of a four-game series against Houston on Thursday. Matt Garza (9-3, 3.55 ERA) goes for the Rangers on Friday at the Los Angeles Angels, who counter with C.J. Wilson (14-6, 3.35 ERA). http://www.flyknitbaratas.es/hombre-mujer-unisex-nike-roshe-one-print-flower-running-zapatillas-tropical-azules-511882-340.html.

PRETORIA, South Africa -- Oscar Pistorius fired guns in public in the months before he killed his girlfriend -- once out of a car sunroof on a road and once in a crowded restaurant, a onetime friend said at the athletes murder trial Tuesday, drawing an aggressive effort from the chief defence lawyer to pick holes in his testimony. The account by Darren Fresco portrayed Pistorius as a reckless hothead infatuated with firearms and seemingly drifting down a precarious path before he fatally shot Reeva Steenkamp through a closed toilet door at his home before dawn on Feb. 14, 2013. Frescos description of how Pistorius once berated a police officer fit the prosecutions attempts to cast the double-amputee athlete as prone to flashes of anger and blinded by an inflated sense of entitlement at a time when his public image was that of a clean-cut poster boy for overcoming adversity. "I said to him, are you (expletive) mad?" Fresco testified after, he said, Pistorius fired his gun out of the sunroof of the car later on the same day that he had the dispute with the police officer. "He just laughed." At the same time, the testimony was coming from a man whose own actions were under scrutiny. Judge Thokozile Masipa cautioned Fresco, who was also a friend of Steenkamp, that some questions could incriminate him for offences including discharge of a firearm in a built-up area, negligent damage to property and reckless endangerment. She said he would not be prosecuted if he answered the questions truthfully. Pistorius, 27, denies shooting the gun in the car, although now two witnesses say that he did. The athlete is on trial for murder in the killing of Steenkamp, and also faces two firearm charges for shooting in public and a third firearm charge for illegal possession of ammunition. Pistorius says he shot Steenkamp by mistake, thinking she was a dangerous intruder. The prosecution says he killed her after an argument. The athletes demeanour in court Tuesday was drastically different from the previous day, when he needed a vomit bucket as he heard a pathologist give graphic details of the injuries he inflicted on his girlfriend when he shot her multiple times. This time, Pistorius mostly sat with his hands in his lap and often made notes. Fresco testified that Pistorius altercation with a police officer happened in late 2012, when their car was pulled over by traffic police for the second time that day. He said Pistorius was furious with an officer for handling his gun, which he had left on the passenger seat. "You cant just touch another mans gun," Pistorius said to the officer, according to Fresco. "He started tellingg the officer: Now your fingerprints are all over my gun, so if something happens, you are then going to be liable for anything that had happened.dddddddddddd He was furious about that. Someone else had touched his gun." Fresco and a former Pistorius girlfriend have both testified that the Olympian shot his gun out of the car sunroof later that day. But their stories do not match in parts, a fact highlighted by defence lawyer Barry Roux. Fresco, who said he was driving the car, testified that Pistorius fired without warning sometime after visiting an unidentified persons house. Samantha Taylor, who was dating the athlete at the time and was in the car, has testified that it happened soon after the altercation with police and after Pistorius and Fresco discussed finding a traffic light to shoot at. Roux also questioned Fresco about an incident at a packed Johannesburg restaurant in the posh Melrose Arch district in early 2013 -- about a month before Steenkamps death -- when he said he handed his gun under the table to Pistorius and it fired. According to Fresco, Pistorius said there was too much "media hype" around him and asked Fresco to take the blame for the shooting, which he did. Fresco said he had warned Pistorius that the gun was "one-up," meaning it had a bullet in the chamber. "I knew that he had a big love for weapons," Fresco testified. "My assumption was that he had competency." Roux asked Fresco when exactly he had warned Pistorius that there was a magazine in the gun and a bullet in the chamber, and when Pistorius had asked him to take the rap. The friend couldnt pinpoint the precise times. "Will you agree, Mr. Fresco, you have uncertainty ... about what specifically happened and what was said?" Roux asked. Roux sought to undermine Frescos character, questioning why he crumpled up a speeding ticket and threw it on the floor of the car after he and Pistorius were stopped by the police. Fresco also said hed been following some previous testimony in the case on Twitter, which witnesses should not do. If convicted on the murder charge, Pistorius could be sent to prison for at least 25 years before the chance of parole, the minimum time someone must serve if given a life sentence in South Africa. The judge will ultimately deliver the verdict and decide on any sentence. South Africa has no trial by jury. Pistorius was born without fibula bones because of a congenital defect, and his legs were amputated when he was 11 months old. He ran on carbon-fiber blades and is a multiple Paralympic medallist . He also competed at the London Olympics but didnt win a medal. Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
