HOUSTON (AP) - Sam Fuld hit a tiebreaking, two-run homer in the ninth inning to give the Oakland Athletics a 5-4 win over the Houston Astros on Wednesday night.

The A's trailed by one entering the ninth before Eric Sogard's RBI single, and Fuld's two-out shot off Chad Qualls (1-4) landed in the seats in right field to put Oakland up 5-3.

Fuld, who entered on a 0-for-9 skid, finished three hits, including a double.

Oakland began the night one game behind the Los Angeles Angels for the AL West lead.

Dan Otero (8-1) pitched 1 1-3 innings for the win. Eric O'Flaherty allowed a solo homer to Chris Carter with two outs in the ninth before retiring Dexter Fowler for his first save since May 2013.
