OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Shea Langeliers hit a two-run homer off Jhoan Duran in the eighth inning, rallying the Oakland Athletics to a 6-5 win over the Minnesota Twins. Tyler Soderstrom added two hits and three RBIs for the A’s, who have won three of four since a season-high nine-game losing streak. With the victory, Oakland secured the end of its streak of 10 consecutive months with a losing record. Sean Newcomb picked off a baserunner to end the eighth inning and became the first A’s pitcher to win without facing a batter. Mason Miller pitched the ninth for his 14th save. Royce Lewis and Willi Castro homered for the Twins.
