OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Brandon Moss hit a tiebreaking RBI double in the fifth inning and Sonny Gray pitched Oakland over the Texas Rangers 4-2 Wednesday, giving the Athletics the best record in the majors.

Yoenis Cespedes and Josh Donaldson each had two hits for the A's. Oakland has won four of five and is a season-high 16 games over .500 at 44-28.

Gray (7-3) had won just two of his previous eight starts before going seven innings and striking out seven.

Luke Gregerson pitched the eighth while Sean Doolittle worked the ninth for his ninth save.

Nick Tepesch (2-3) went five innings.
