The Astros lost a tough one last night in extra innings to the A’s, in part due to a controversial call in the ninth inning. The A’s would walk it off in the tenth, and in so doing pull to within one game of the AL West lead. If they win today the AL West will be tied between the two teams playing today, with the A’s hoping to take sole possession tomorrow with a series sweep.
Dallas Keuchel takes the mound today for the Stros to stop the madness. He will be opposed by Trevor Cahill.
