OAKLAND Matt Ryan Jersey Limited , Calif. (AP) — Rich Hill played just long enough for the Oakland Athletics two years ago to get a feel for how they can come back when it’s close and win in the late innings, a signature of his former club this season.Hill pitched effectively into the sixth inning to beat his old team for the first time, while the offense manufactured runs to lead the Los Angeles Dodgers past the A’s 4-2 on Tuesday night to snap Oakland’s six-game winning streak.“That’s the theme of this entire team is that everybody comes up to play every single day and we grind it out,” Hill said. “We don’t have many easy wins. I don’t think any wins are easy but we don’t have many wins where we put up 20.”Hill (5-4) allowed two runs, three hits and four walks while striking out five over 5 1/3 innings. He is 3-1 with a 3.12 ERA in eight road starts.The left-hander hadn’t defeated the A’s previously in five appearances and one start. He won nine games for Oakland in 2016 before being dealt to the Dodgers.Khris Davis hit a two-run homer in the sixth — his 32nd — to get the A’s back in it and chase Hill. But the Dodgers put up a key insurance run on Matt Kemp’s RBI single in the seventh that followed a leadoff double by pinch-hitter Joc Pederson.Kemp ended an 0-for-10 funk.“To get a knock and drive in a run I know he was pretty relieved,” manager Dave Roberts said.No late-inning magic or dramatic finish for the home team this time.The Dodgers took a 1-0 lead against Sean Manaea (10-8) in the first on Enrique Hernandez’s RBI groundout. Los Angeles added a run on Austin Barnes‘ second-inning sacrifice bunt then Cody Bellinger’s RBI single in the third.Kenley Jansen closed it out with a pair of strikeouts in a perfect ninth for his 32nd save.Oakland had an eight-game home winning streak end. The A’s six-game winning streak matched their season high.Manaea didn’t make it through the third.Trying to win consecutive outings for the first time since a three-start winning streak from June 16-28, he was done after allowing three runs and five hits in 2 2/3 innings on 77 pitches.“Just one of those nights where it didn’t look like there was much life,” manager Bob Melvin said. “They were getting some pretty good swings on him. Didn’t look like he was fooling anybody.”A’s starting pitchers had been 5-0 with a 0.73 ERA during the homestand as Oakland didn’t allow an earned run in a three-game weekend sweep of the Tigers.HAMMER TIMEMC Hammer tossed the ceremonial first pitch on African-American heritage night at the Coliseum.TRAINER’S ROOMDodgers: RHP reliever Daniel Hudson went on the 10-day disabled list with right forearm tightness in a precautionary move after he struggled playing catch Sunday and again Tuesday. … SS Corey Seager had arthroscopic surgery on his left hip now that he is well into his recovery from Tommy John elbow surgery that limited him to just 26 games this season.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Texas Rangers declined their 2019 options for catcher Robinson Chirinos and three pitchers on Friday, when their longest-tenured player stayed put.While the Rangers had been expected to let pitchers Doug Fister, Matt Moore and Martin Perez become free agents, the decision on Chirinos was a bit of a surprise. Their primary starting catcher had a $4.5 million option for next season with a $100 Authentic Calvin Ridley Jersey ,000 buyout.“We wanted to explore some things in the marketplace. We haven’t necessarily closed the door on Robbie by any stretch,” Daniels said. “It’s just the timing of it. We weren’t ready to commit. We wanted to explore potential alternatives behind the plate.”Shortstop Elvis Andrus, at 30 and already with the team 10 seasons, is halfway through a $120 million, eight-year deal that offered him the opportunity to become a free agent this offseason. He also has that option next year.Andrus, the only player remaining who was part of both of the team’s World Series appearances (2010 and 2011), had indicated that he was staying, but Friday was the deadline for that decision.Andrus hit .256 this season, when he went on the disabled list for the first time in his career and played only 97 games. He missed two months because of a fractured right elbow after getting hit by a pitch in April.The Rangers last offseason exercised a $6 million club option on Perez before he broke a bone in his right (non-throwing) elbow that required surgery. This time, they chose a $750 Calvin Ridley Jersey Limited ,000 buyout over a $7.5 million option after he went 2-7 with a 6.22 ERA in 22 games. Daniels said the team could consider bringing him back at a lower price.“He really didn’t bounce back from the injury,” Daniels said. “I think it really affected him and led to some mechanical issues.”Moore ($750,000 buyout) and Fister ($500,000) were acquisitions last offseason. Fister began the season as the team’s No. 2 starter, but went 1-7 with a 4.50 ERA in 12 starts before going on the disabled list in June with a strained right knee that kept him from pitching again. Moore was 3-8 with a 6.79 ERA in 39 games (12 starts, 27 relief appearances).The Rangers did add a potential starter when they acquired lefty Drew Smyly from the Chicago Cubs.That deal, for a player to be named later, came after the Cubs exercised the $20 million option on Cole Hamels, the lefty the Rangers traded to Chicago this summer. Texas would have had to make an additional $6 million payment to the Cubs if the pitcher’s option had been declined, triggering a $6 million buyout.Smyly signed a $10 million http://www.atlantafalconsteamonline.com/calvin-ridley-jersey , two-year contract with Chicago last December that includes a $7 million salary for next year. He was healthy at the end of last season after recovering from Tommy John surgery. Daniels said Smyly had a physical in Texas, and is expected to have a normal offseason before spring training.Fister was one of six right-handers Texas activated from the 60-day disabled list. The others were Clayton Blackburn, Matt Bush, Nick Gardewine and Ronald Herrera.Blackburn, right-hander Austin Bibens-Dirkx, lefty Brandon Mann, catcher Carlos Perez and outfielder Ryan Rua to Triple-A Nashville. All are expected to decline the outright assignment and elect free agency.
