Astros Score Two In 11th To Top A's


Kyle Tucker scored the winning run on catcher Jonathan Lucroy's 11th inning throwing error as the Astros beat the Athletics 6-5 in Houston.  Justin Verlander yielded three hits  over six scoreless innings in a no-decision.  Alex Bregman hit two home  runs, but it was his tapper in the 11th that ended it with the error.   Houston led 4-0 after eight innings.  The A's tied it in the ninth with  Marcus Semien driving in two runs with a double, with Khris Davis and  Matt Olson chipping in RBI-singles.  Stephen Piscotty homered in the  11th to put Oakland up 5-4 before the bizarre ending in the bottom of  the inning.  The A's are 10-games above .500, but trail the Astros by 10 games.
