The Jarrod Parker Report

by Bill Chuck on September 5, 2013

The Oakland A’s muscled their way back into a tie atop the AL West by defeating their rival Texas Rangers, 11-4.

Brandon Moss, Daric Barton and Coco Crisp each hit two-run homers, and Josh Donaldson hit a three-run shot for the A’s who beat up the Rangers ace Yu Darvish (12-7) who lost for the second consecutive start.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, Jarrod Parker has now won his last nine decisions, the most by an A’s pitcher since Dan Haren won 10 in a row in 2007.

Parker (11-6) allowed two runs in six innings to extend his unbeaten streak to 18 straight starts, topping Catfish Hunter’s Oakland mark set from June 2-Sept. 3, 1973.
