OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- David Murphy hit a tiebreaking RBI single with two outs in the ninth inning, and the Texas Rangers beat the Oakland Athletics 7-6 on Sunday for a three-game series sweep.

Mitch Moreland hit a sacrifice fly, Michael Young and Mike Napoli each drew bases-loaded walks against former Ranger Rich Harden and first-place Texas extended its winning streak in the rivalry to eight games. The Rangers (69-52) also moved a season-best 17 games over .500.

Mike Adams (1-1) pitched a 1-2-3 eighth for the victory, then Neftali Feliz finished for his 23rd save in 29 chances as Texas won its fourth straight road game heading into a key four-game series with the Angels in Anaheim.
