OAKLAND, Calif. -- A day after a 14-run defeat, the Texas Rangers rallied from an early deficit against the defending division champions. Manager Ron Washington expects to know plenty about his club following this early test facing Oakland. Donnie Murphy lined a go-ahead single up the middle with one out in the eighth inning, and the Rangers came from behind to beat the Athletics 4-3 on Monday night. "Theyre the division champs, it goes through them," Washington said. Sean Doolittle (0-1) allowed a leadoff double to Kevin Kouzmanoff and Mitch Moreland sacrificed him to third before Murphys hit. Murphy and Kouzmanoff are both former As players. Neal Cotts (1-1) pitched one inning for the win, then gave way to Alexi Ogando before Joakim Soria finished for his fourth save. Brandon Moss homered and Coco Crisp hit a two-run single as the As went ahead 3-1 in the second, but they couldnt hold the lead. Oakland swept a weekend series against Houston and lost for only the second time in nine games and third time in 14. "I dont think too many times youll see Doolittle give it up," Washington said. "Hes only human." Kouzmanoff also singled in a run for the Rangers, who had their season-best five-game winning streak snapped in Sundays 16-2 home loss to the White Sox. Yu Darvish needed 29 pitches to get through the second inning, when he allowed Moss leadoff homer and the single by Crisp. Darvish allowed three runs on eight hits in six innings, struck out six and walked four on 116 pitches. "Im kind of surprised I was able to pitch through the sixth inning," he said. "After the third, I told Wash that no matter the pitch count I was going to pitch through six innings." The right-hander hasnt beaten Oakland since May 16, 2012, and is still looking for his first victory at the Coliseum -- one of three ballparks where he has multiple losses. Darvish is 0-6 in his last seven starts against the As. He saw the end of his streak of eight straight outings allowing two or fewer runs, dating to last season. Shin-Soo Choo led off the game with a home run. He later left the game in the seventh after landing awkwardly on his left ankle extending his leg to beat out what was ruled an infield single. X-rays were negative, but Choo was expected to have an MRI exam Tuesday to determine the severity of his sprain. "We have a long season, its April," Choo said. "I dont want to make it worse." As manager Bob Melvin challenged the call that Choo was safe, and it was then overturned in 3 minutes, 45 seconds, on review. "I heard that he was out. Based on the replay I was seeing I wasnt sure about it but they said that there was one replay that showed that he was out," Melvin said. "That was one I challenge either way." Oakland starter Dan Straily struck out six in five innings, but left with a no-decision after the Rangers tied the game at 3 on Prince Fielders RBI single in the top of the fifth. Crisp landed hard on his ribcage trying to make a diving catch in the sixth, but stayed in centre field after a trainer and Melvin hustled out to check on him. Crisp singled for his third hit in the bottom half, then made a leaping catch in the seventh. As left fielder Yoenis Cespedes was held out of the starting lineup with a sore heel, though he reported feeling better. Cespedes flied out to the warning track in centre as a pinch-hitter in the seventh then stayed in the game as left fielder. NOTES: Crisp stole his 146th base for with the As, tying him with Carney Lansford for fourth place in Oakland history. ... Rangers LHP Matt Harrison threw a bullpen and is scheduled for another Tuesday before being re-evaluated. He is recovering from back surgery -- and the hope is he could make his season debut and first start in more than a year this weekend at Seattle. ... Former As prospect Michael Choice, traded during the off-season, entered on defence for Choo in the seventh and singled and stole a base in the ninth. ...

Cheap Saucony Shoes China .The rookie goalie made 36 saves to help the Calgary Flames blank their Pacific Division rivals 1-0 on Saturday following a 48-hour ordeal that included lost baggage, a cancelled flight and a new pair of contact lenses.CALGARY - Hunter Shinkaruk is back with the Vancouver Canucks, healthy, and off to a great start this pre-season.Playing in front of a bunch of friends and family in his hometown, Shinkaruk scored his second goal in as many games on Thursday, helping the Canucks to a 3-1 victory over the Calgary Flames.Shinkaruk tipped a shot from Kent Huskins on net that was stopped, but he batted the rebound out of mid-air and past Brad Thiessen at the 9:49 mark of the third period.Its been really good. Our team has played really well in both of the games Ive played. Its been fun, said the 19-year-old, who was selected 24th in the 2013 NHL Draft. Its always exciting playing hockey, especially for me that I havent played in a while.Shinkaruk was one of the final cuts for Vancouver at training camp a year ago. Following that was a disappointing season with the Western Hockey Leagues Medicine Hat Tigers that was cut short by a hip injury that limited him to just 18 games.I feel great. I feel 100 per cent. I feel a lot better than I did last year, Shinkaruk said. I got a little bit stronger. I feel a little bit quicker. I feel like its helped me out a lot and Im definitely happy all the hard work has paid off.Known as a goal scorer, he knows thats what he has to contribute if he hopes to make the Canucks.Thats the kind of the role I have to play. I know that, I think everyone else knows that so I put pressure on myself to produce and obviously, scoring in my home town tonight was something that Ill never forget.Chris Higgins and Nicklas Jensen also scored for Vancouver, which improved to 2-1-0 in exhibition play.Sean Monahan scored for Calgary, whose pre-season record falls to 2-2-0.Eddie Lack got the start in net for the Canucks and was perfect on 20 shots before being relieved halfway through the second by Joacim Eriksson. Lack has stopped all 36 shots hes face in his two pre-season appearances.Jonas Hiller made his second start for the Flames. He faced only 12 shots in two periods of action, stopping 10 of them.The buzz going into the game was the much anticipated pre-season debut of Sam Bennett, who the Flames selected fourth overall last June in the NHL Draft, making him Calgarys highest draft pick in team history.Bennett did not disappoint, firing a game-high seven shots on goal in just 16 minutes of ice time. All night he showed glimpses of his raw talent that makes him such an exciting player to watch.Tonight, its very simple, he was our best forward, said Flames coach Bob Hartley. He was exciting, he was on the puck, he wwas creating lots of chances.dddddddddddd Its only a first game but its quite a good impression.Having turned 18 in June, Bennett is young and most are expecting him to return to the Ontario Hockey Leagues Kingston Frontenacs for another year of major junior hockey. But dont tell Bennett that.Whatever management is thinking right now, Im trying to prove that I am ready. I want them to not be able to send me home, said Bennett, who assisted on the Flames only goal a€” scored by 2013 sixth overall pick Sean Monahan. Before, it was all talk. I finally got a game to show everyone what I know Im capable of doing.Hartley acknowledges Bennett has a long way to go to make the Flames this year but he was impressed by the first outing.Sam is skating as fast a€” with or without the puck a€” and there are very few players that can do this. His sense for the puck and how creative he is, its just unbelievable. Hes fast in tight areas like I rarely see with any young players, Hartley said.Hampered to begin training camp by a strained groin, Bennett finally got to participate in a regular practice with the team on Tuesday. He showed no effects of the injury against the Canucks.It was a shift early in the second period where Bennett really had the Scotiabank Saddledome crowd on the edge of their seats.First, he cut in front of the net quickly after looking he was going behind and fooled nearly everyone but could not tuck the puck in the near post. Right after on a shot from the blue-line, Bennett deftly deflected a point shot out of mid-air and on net. Next rush up the ice, he took the puck hard to the net, had his shot stopped, but ended up bulldozing Lack in the process.Definitely I was going on that shift. Anytime I touched the puck, I seemed to get a scoring chance. It was just one of those shifts where everything was going my way, Bennett said. After I got up from running over the goalie, I think I heard (the crowd) cheer a little bit. Definitely thats pretty cool to get the support from the crowd.Those three shots in less than 30 seconds gave Bennett five on the game and at the time, that was more than the Vancouver Canucks team had.Notes: Bennett opened the game centring veteran David Jones and rookie Michael Ferland but Hartley mixed up his lines over much of the second and third period... The only area where Bennett struggled was at the face-off dot, going 4-11... The two teams meet again Friday night in Vancouver... Calgary still has 58 players in camp so expect a bunch of cuts in the very near future. ' ' '
