Kyle Tucker scored the winning run on catcher Jonathan Lucroy's 11th inning throwing error as the Astros beat the Athletics 6-5 in Houston. Justin Verlander yielded three hits over six scoreless innings in a no-decision. Alex Bregman hit two home runs, but it was his tapper in the 11th that ended it with the error. Houston led 4-0 after eight innings. The A's tied it in the ninth with Marcus Semien driving in two runs with a double, with Khris Davis and Matt Olson chipping in RBI-singles. Stephen Piscotty homered in the 11th to put Oakland up 5-4 before the bizarre ending in the bottom of the inning. The A's are 10-games above .500, but trail the Astros by 10 games.
