OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Jose Altuve had two hits and drove in a run to back a stellar outing by Brad Peacock, and the Houston Astros beat Oakland 3-2 on Thursday night to knock the Athletics out of first place in the AL West.

Trevor Crowe singled, doubled and scored to help the Astros to their third win in the last four games against their division rivals. Oakland had won 11 of the first 12 meetings between the teams.

Peacock, part of the offseason trade that sent infielder Jed Lowrie to the A's, had no trouble handling Oakland in the third start against his former club. He carried a shutout into the eighth inning, finishing with nine strikeouts and one walk.

Chris Carter, who was also included in the deal with Oakland, singled to drive in Houston's first run.
