ARLINGTON, Texas — Fremont’s Mark Mathias hit his second homer of the game, a solo shot with one out in the bottom of the ninth, as the Texas Rangers rallied from a five-run deficit to beat the Oakland Athletics 8-7 on Tuesday night.

Mathias, an Irvington High grad, had three extra-base hits and drove in four runs. Adolis Garcia added a two-run homer and had three RBIs for Texas.

The Santa Clara-born Mathias hit his decisive homer to left off Joel Payamps (3-5), who came on in the ninth.

Brock Burke (7-3), the last of three Texas pitchers, threw two scoreless innings to earn the win. With the Rangers having played a day-night doubleheader in Miami on Monday, Mathias hit second in the batting order for the first time with Texas.
