Rangers power past A's 8-2


Jurickson Profar homered twice and drove in five runs to power the Rangers to an 8-2 win over the Athletics in Arlington.  Joey Gallo and Ronald  Guzman also went deep as Texas won its second straight.  Bartolo Colon  tossed five innings of two-run ball to pick up his 243rd career win,  tying Hall of Fame pitcher Juan Marichal for most wins by a  Dominican-born player.  Khris Davis crushed a two-run homer for Oakland  in the loss.  Daniel Mengden surrendered six runs over four frames to  fall to 6-and-5.  The A's have lost three-of-four.
