Athletics 5, Astros 4
HOUSTON — Former Ray Sam Fuld hit a tiebreaking, two-run homer in the ninth inning for the Athletics. Oakland trailed by one entering the ninth before Eric Sogard's RBI single, and Fuld's two-out shot off Chad Qualls landed in the seats in rightfield to put Oakland up 5-3. Fuld, who entered on a 0-for-9 skid, finished three hits, including a double. Eric O'Flaherty got his first save since May 2013.
