Sept. 4, 2013 at 7:05 PM

OAKLAND, Calif., Sept. 4 (UPI) -- Coco Crisp drove in four runs and smacked one of four Oakland home runs Wednesday in the Athletics' 11-4 victory over division rival Texas.

Crisp supplied a two-run single in Oakland's six-run sixth inning, and added a two-run shot in the eighth as the A's forged a tie with Texas atop the American League West.

Josh Donaldson unleashed a three-run homer while Brandon Moss added a two-run blast and Daric Barton provided a solo shot as the A's took the rubber match of a key three-game series.

Jarrod Parker (11-6) remained unbeaten since May 22 -- a span of 18 starts -- limiting the Rangers to two runs on five hits over six innings. He didn't issue a walk and struck out four.

Texas starter Yu Darvish (12-7) was lit up for five runs on five hits over five innings.

Geovany Soto homered and Craig Gentry went 2-for-4 with an RBI for the Rangers.
