Astros Hammer A's For Eighth Straight Win


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.
