A's Blank Astros


Stephen Piscotty broke a scoreless tie with a solo homer in the seventh inning as the Athletics edged the Astros 2-0 in Houston.  Piscotty added an insurance run with an RBI single in  the eighth.  Frankie Montas tossed six frames of three-hit ball for the  win and Blake Treinen locked down the save.  The A's have won three  straight and 12-of-15 overall.  Gerrit Cole struck out 11 over six  innings of three-hit ball in a no-decision.  Cole now has 169 strikeouts  on the season, a Houston record for most before the All-Star break.   Brad Peacock took the loss as the 'Stros winning streak was halted at  six games.
