MLB: Oakland 12, Texas 1

OAKLAND, Calif., June 5 (UPI) -- Oakland's Jarrod Parker took a no-hitter into the eighth inning Monday and the Athletics banged out 15 hits in their 12-1 rout of Texas.

Parker (2-2), making just his ninth major-league start, did not allow a base hit until Michael Young led off the eighth with a single to center field.

The right-handed former first-round draft pick finished eight full innings having allowed just the one hit, while issuing three walks and striking out six for the A's, who took the opener of a four-game series against the American League West leaders.

Brandon Inge triggered an eight-run second inning with a three-run homer and added a fourth RBI with a run-scoring single later in the frame. The A's sent 13 men to the plate during the big inning.

Kila Ka'aihue socked a two-run homer and Seth Smith went 4-for-5 with an RBI for Oakland.

Rangers starter Scott Feldman (0-4) was rocked for eight runs on seven hits, lasting only 1 2/3 innings.
