OAKLAND, Calif. – Corey Seager hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning and the Texas Rangers cruised past the Oakland Athletics 4-2 on Monday night.

The defending World Series champions trailed 2-0 until Seager drilled a full-count pitch from Lucas Erceg (1-2) over the right-center wall with two outs. Texas added an insurance run in the ninth on an error by first baseman Tyler Nevin.
