Astros-Athletics Preview

(AP) -- Regardless of how they do it, the Oakland Athletics continue to have their way with the Houston Astros.

Coming off a dramatic ninth-inning victory, the A's look to sweep this three-game set Sunday with a sixth consecutive home win over an Astros team that's trying to avoid a seventh straight defeat.

Less than 24 hours after hitting four homers during an 11-3 rout of Houston (5-13), Oakland scored three times in the ninth Saturday to win 4-3. Alberto Callaspo delivered a tying hit and Josh Reddick's RBI single sent the A's (12-5) to their 10th win in 12 games.
