MLB: Game Two-Houston Astros at Oakland Athletics John Hefti-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Astros have led the American League standings since the early part of the season. They weren't in first place by themselves after Saturday.

The Astros were swept in Saturday's doubleheader with an 11-4 loss to the Athletics.

The storyline was very similar to game one with the Astros offense struggling and the bullpen imploding.

After five scoreless innings for both teams, Jose Altuve broke the tie with a two-run home run. Jose Reddick and George Springer would collect RBIs to put Houston up 4-3 after 5 1/2 innings.

Chris Devenski couldn't hold the lead in the seventh inning. Chad Pinder, he hit a solo home run to put Houston up 5-4.

Michael Feliz entered the game with two outs and one runner on. Feliz then proceeds to allow the next five batters to reach base, the A's led 11-4 after eight innings.

The Astros couldn't get a hit against Chris Hatcher and Santiago Casilla over the final three innings.
