HOUSTON (AP) - Coco Crisp hit a leadoff homer and added two doubles in Oakland's big fifth inning, and the Athletics got an 8-3 win over the Houston Astros on Friday.

Crisp sent the fourth pitch of the night over the wall in the corner of right field for his ninth career leadoff homer.

Dan Straily (1-0) allowed five hits and struck a career-high 11 in 6 2-3 solid innings for the win.

The Athletics were up 1-0 when Crisp doubled with one out in the fifth to chase Houston starter Brad Peacock (0-1). His second double drove in two runs later in Oakland's seven-run fifth.

Josh Donaldson added a two-run single in that inning as the Athletics visited the Astros for just the second time and the first since 2007.
