HOUSTON (AP) - Dexter Fowler hit a tiebreaking RBI single in Houston's four-run eighth inning, and the Astros beat the Oakland Athletics 7-6 on Saturday night.
Fowler also had a solo homer as Houston snapped a three-game losing streak. Chris Carter connected for a two-run shot in the second.
The game was tied at 3 when Fowler drove in Marwin Gonzalez with a base hit against Sean Doolittle (0-2). Jason Castro then singled in Jose Altuve, and Fowler and Castro eventually came home on groundouts.
Brandon Moss hit a three-run homer in the Oakland ninth against Jerome Williams (1-1). Nick Punto then singled, but Coco Crisp bounced into a fielder's choice and Raul Valdes struck out John Jaso and Jed Lowrie for his first save.
