A's Rookie Bats Put Up Massive Numbers in 14-9 Win Against Rangers

The No. 1 rule of romance is to make sure you find someone who loves you as much as Khris Davis loves to hit at Globe Life Park. And he proved he will miss the park in Arlington, Tex. when the Rangers bid farewell to their current home field.

The A's designated hitter hit two homers on Friday night in the A's 14-9 win. He remained hot throughout the night to mirror the temperatures he loves to hit in.

Davis now has 19 home runs in 34 career games at Globe Life Park. 

Rookie catcher Sean Murphy may also find himself gushing over the location as he went 3-for-4 on the night with three doubles. The last one was a zinger down the line, but he said he would take those every time.

"I'm just happy to keep this thing going -- I felt pretty good up there, and I want to keep this feeling as long as I can," Murphy told reporters after the game.

Third baseman Sheldon Neuse also had himself a night.

"Early on, offensively I wasn't doing too great -- I had a big offensive day today," Neuse said during the postgame broadcast.

He certainly did. The rookie went 4-for-5 and smiled as he said he was a bit upset knowing it took him as long as it did to get into a rhythm. 

But the young guys came up big in a game that could have gone the other way.
