ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Jesse Chavez allowed one hit in seven scoreless innings, Eric Sogard matched his season total with three RBIs on Wednesday night and the Oakland Athletics completed a three-game sweep with a 12-1 rout of the sloppy Texas Rangers.
Yoenis Cespedes had two doubles, scored twice and drove in two runs for the A's, who scored 10 runs combined in the third and fourth innings to answer a three-game sweep by the Rangers in Oakland last week.
The Rangers matched a season high with four errors, including one of two by shortstop Elvis Andrus on what could have been an inning-ending double play in Oakland's seven-run third.
Chavez (2-0) walked one and struck out eight, allowing only Prince Fielder's soft line-drive single to right-center field in the first inning.
Robbie Ross (1-2) gave up 11 hits and 10 runs in 3 1-3 innings.
