Mike Napoli hits grand slam to help Rangers beat Athletics 8-5 for fifth straight win
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) ' C.J. Wilson pitched seven effective innings, Mike Napoli hit a first-inning grand slam off Gio Gonzalez, and the Texas Rangers stretched their winning streak to five games with an 8-5 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Friday night a night after a fan was killed in a fall while catching a foul ball.
Josh Hamilton, who tossed the ball to the fan on Thursday night, hit a fan with a foul ball off his bat. The teenage male fan had blood on his face and was tended to by stadium personnel before he walked away, smiling while he held a compress to his head.
Rangers officials said the fan was treated at the stadium and was OK. They didn't identify him or provide additional details.
