Astros 4, Athletics 2
HOUSTON — Chris Carter hit his 32nd homer, a three-run drive in the eighth inning, that lifted the Astros. Oakland starter Jason Hammel had retired 10 straight when he was replaced by Luke Gregerson for the eighth. Robbie Grossman reached on an error with one out and Gregerson hit Jose Altuve with a pitch. Carter then launched a 90 mph fastball onto the tracks atop the wall in leftfield.
