OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Josh Reddick hit an RBI single that capped a three-run rally in the ninth inning, lifting the Oakland Athletics over the Houston Astros 4-3 on Saturday.
The Astros lost their sixth in a row.
Jed Lowrie started the comeback with a leadoff home run against Chad Qualls (0-1).
Josh Donaldson walked and Yoenis Cespedes then singled. After Qualls struck out pinch-hitter John Jaso, Alberto Callaspo hit a tying single and Reddick followed with a one-out liner to right-center.
Dan Otero (3-0) pitched the ninth for the win after starter Scott Kazmir had gone eight strong innings.
