Brian McCann smacked a two-run homer to lead the red-hot Astros past the Athletics 7-3 in Oakland. Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa and Yuli Gurriel all drove in a run and scored for Houston, which swept the three-game series and won its eighth straight overall. Justin Verlander tossed seven innings of three-run ball to move to 9-and-2 with the win. Khris Davis and Matt Olson went deep for the A's, who are just 1-and-8 against the Astros this season. Frankie Montas suffered his first loss.
