ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Oakland Athletics designated hitter Jack Cust left Friday's opener of a doubleheader against Texas in the third inning with lower back spasms.
Cust flied out in the first inning. Bobby Crosby hit for him in the third.
Cust was scratched from the starting lineup for Wednesday's game at Seattle because of tightness in his lower back.
