TEXAS (AP -- Oakland knocked out Texas starter Sam Narron, who was making his Major League Baseball debut, after 2 2/3 innings on Friday evening. He gave up four earned runs on three homers, two of them by Eric Byrnes.
A tall, soft-throwing lefty, Narron got behind quickly when Byrnes hit the game's fifth pitch into the right-field seats. Byrnes opened the third inning by pulling a homer into the left-field seats, giving him his third multihomer game of his career, all this season. Erubiel Durazo chased Narron with a two-run homer a few batters later.
Narron, a cousin of former Rangers manager Jerry Narron, became Texas' 13th different starter this season. A 14th may be needed as Thursday night's starter, R.A. Dickey, went on the disabled list to open a roster spot for Narron.
Texas rallied for a 7-5 win.
