ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Brett Tomko pitched a five-hitter for his 100th major league win and the Oakland Athletics dealt a blow to Texas' playoff hopes, routing the Rangers 9-0 on Monday night.

Released by the New York Yankees on July 29, Tomko (5-3) struck out three and didn't walk a batter in his second career shutout and 13th complete game. He beat Scott Feldman, snapping the right-hander's seven-game winning streak.

The Rangers have lost three of their first four on a nine-game homestand, falling 4½ games behind Boston for the AL wild card. It's the farthest Texas has been out of a playoff spot all season.
