Athletics

Everybody expects the A's to sell before the trade deadline. But with a 9-4 start to the second half, the front office may be forced to reconsider.
Trailing 3-2 in the eighth, Coco Crisp and Khris Davis clubbed a pair of two-run homers to propel the A's past the Rangers 6-4 Wednesday night.
In need of a starter for Saturday's game in Cleveland, the A's will recall top prospect Dillon Overton. As for Sunday, Rich Hill remains a possibility.
