Semien, Cotton send Athletics past sloppy Astros 3-2

HOUSTON (AP) Marcus Semien wound up with a Little League home run when Houston kept throwing the ball away to help the Oakland Athletics avoid a sweep with a win over the Houston Astros on Sunday.

The play in the 3-2 victory reminded Semien of the last time he was involved in something similar - which actually was in Little League.

"I have had that play happen in Little League on my mom's birthday," Semien recalled of a game when he was about 6. "She called it a home run and ... there were errors but she was like: `Oh you hit a home run for me on my birthday.' And it was probably like an infield single that turned into a run scored."
