Madson gives up game-winning HR as A's lose 7-6 to Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Ryan Madson felt good facing Adrian Beltre with two outs in the ninth inning Monday night. Perhaps too good.

Beltre hit Madson's first pitch into the left-center field bullpen, turning the Oakland Athletics' one-run lead into a 7-6 loss to the Texas Rangers.

"A good fastball-hitting guy, sitting fastball," Madson said. "Maybe I was being a little bullheaded, trying to beat him instead of putting it in a good place.
