Game Thread #41: A's at Astros

The A's try to tie their season best winning streak as they go for their second win in a row. Sonny Gray is on the hill for the A's, so at the very least, today should be watchable.

The A's take on the division leading (WHAT KIND OF WORLD DO WE LIVE IN?) Astros in the second game of the series. We are 40 games into the year, and the A's haven't won 3 in a row. There's no time like the present right? Well, not the direct present since we can only get to two tonight, but like soonish would be neat. Preston Tucker starts in left for the Astros, I only note that because I'm pretty sure Preston Tucker was a bully on Saved by the Bell.

Let's go Oakland!
