Athletics 3, Astros 2

HOUSTON — Kendall Graveman threw eight solid innings and Stephen Vogt had three hits, including a homer, to lead the Athletics. Vogt hit a solo home run in the second, an RBI single in the third and came around to score on a Marcus Semien bases-loaded walk that made it 3-0. Graveman allowed two runs on five hits, extending his win streak to four games. The outing tied the longest of his career at eight innings, which he set in 2015. He retired the first 14 batters to start the game before A.J. Reed singled with two outs in the fifth.
