HOUSTON — Coco Crisp, Jed Lowrie and Seth Smith homered for the Athletics. Crisp homered for the second straight game with a solo shot in the fourth that put Oakland up 1-0. Lowrie, who spent last season with the Astros, added a solo homer in a four-run sixth inning. Derek Norris gave the A's the lead with a run-scoring single later in the sixth. Oakland starter Bartolo Colon was solid in his return from a 50-game drug suspension.
