Game #7: Reckless A's Sweep Astros, Lose Reddick

357

"Winnin' Stupid"? That might be the best motto for the A's 5th consecutive win, a 9-3 trouncing of the hapless Houston Astros.

This Date in A's History, April 7

At the stretch, it's A's 8, Astros 2. Or if you're counting "players not trying to injure themselves," it's Astros 25, A's 23.

5-0 A's after 4 thanks to Seth Smith's 2-run double, Jed Lowrie's 2-run HR, and Coco Crisp's 3rd HR in as many games.

Game Thread #7: A's at Astros

In a way, playing the Astros is a lot of pressure because anything short of a sweep is a failure. Witness the opening series of the year, when Texas took 2 out of 3...and epically failed.

Colon Chews Up Astros, A's Win 6-3

95

Bartolo Colon needed just 83 pitches to complete 6 quality innings, and Houston manager Bo Porter left in his starter, Bud Norris, for just one or two batters too long. There were also dingers.
