MLB: Oakland Athletics at Houston Astros Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports

It’s gonna be a dogfight for the divisional crown this year, and this laast game between the two top contenders for the AL West crown could help to decide the winner.

The A’s pulled off a win last night with a 4-3 win decided by a ninth inning run by the A’s. The Astros hope to win and put the A’s back to 2.5 behind in the divisional race, whilst the A’s are trying to pull within .5 with a win today. Big game.

Here’s the lineup.
