The Houston Astros extended their winning streak with a commanding 7-3 victory over the Oakland Athletics. Astros pitcher Zack Greinke showed his mastery on the mound, throwing six innings of one-run ball, striking out eight batters.
The Astros’ offense was firing on all cylinders, with José Altuve and Carlos Correa leading the way. Altuve contributed a three-run homer, while Correa added a solo shot. Alex Bregman also had a productive game, driving in two runs.
The Athletics struggled to find their rhythm, with their offense stifled by the pitching prowess of Greinke and the Astros’ bullpen. Ramón Laureano and Matt Olson managed to hit home runs for the Athletics, but their efforts were not enough to overcome the Astros’ dominant performance.
This win further solidifies the Astros’ position at the top of the American League West standings and showcases the depth and talent of their roster. The Athletics will need to regroup and find ways to generate more offense if they hope to challenge the Astros in the division.
