Astros 2, Athletics 1

OAKLAND, Calif. — The Astros' Doug Fister didn't have much margin for error, not with Houston managing only two hits — none after the third inning. That turned out to be all the right-hander needed to end his three-game losing streak. Fister pitched effectively into the seventh inning, Jose Altuve homered leading off a game for the fourth time this season and Houston avoided a series sweep.
