MESA, Ariz. (AP) -- Anthony Ranaudo pitched six solid innings and Elvis Andrus, Jake Smolinski and Chris Gimenez each drove in runs for Texas before the Oakland Athletics rallied in the ninth for a 7-6 victory Friday over the Rangers.

Mark Canha hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth after the Rangers scored five times over the final three innings to take the lead.

A's starter Jesse Hahn allowed a run on three hits over 5 1-3 innings in his first appearance against the Rangers. He walked one and struck out three.

Former Ranger Craig Gentry doubled, tripled and scored two runs for the A's. Stephen Vogt homered among his two hits and Ben Zobrist and Billy Butler each drove in a run.

Ranuado, in the hunt for a spot in the Rangers' rotation, gave up two runs on five hits. He struck out two and did not walk a batter.
