• Astros Hold On for 7-6 Victory Over Athletics

    Summary of 4 articles · Updated Apr 26, 2014
    The A’s jumped on Josh Fields and scored seven runs in the top of the ninth to break a tie and take control for the 12-5 victory. Daric Barton and Josh Donaldson had two RBIs apiece in a seven-run ninth inning to help the Oakland Athletics to a 12-5 win over the Houston Astros on Friday night. Of all things, it was a bases-clearing ground ball that paved the way for their 12-5 victory at Minute Maid Park part of a seven-run ninth inning that also featured some more drama between the clubs. Another day, another round of accusations and, unfortunately for the Astros, another thorough victory for the A’s. Castro angrily screamed toward the A’s dugout after he was hit, and Astros manager Bo Porter charged out of the dugout to argue with Baker. Brandon Moss was hit by a pitch twice in the frame a first in A's history before teammate Fernando Abad plunked Jason Castro with a pitch in the bottom of the inning, leading home-plate umpire Jordan Baker to issue a warning to both sides.
