At Surprise, Ariz., Mitch Moreland returned to the Texas lineup from a side injury and singled home two runs during a five-run sixth as the Rangers defeated the Athletics 6-2 Monday.

Alberto Callaspo went 3 for 3 for the A's and is 12 for 28 (.429) in his past 10 games. Jaso singled home a run, giving him eight RBIs in his past eight games.

A's minor leaguer Sean Murphy limited the Rangers to one single over 4? scoreless innings in his debut against big league hitters.

"It was definitely nerve-wracking," Murphy said. "That first inning I was so nervous. When you see a lineup like that, who wouldn't get a little nervous?

"It was a blast. I can't even put it into words. I'm just super pumped right now. Getting big names out is definitely a key, so I'm definitely proud of that. That lineup is super tough," he said.
