The A's dropped the series finale to the Houston Astros on Sunday, getting swept for the third straight series and heading to Arlington losers of 8 straight.
Things did not start well for Oakland today as they fell behind early and never got much going with the bats, managing just a single hit and a trio of walks against the Houston starting pitcher. They scored some runs late off the bullpen and made it interesting but it was too little too late for the squad.
Entering today, starter Cole Irvin had struggled all season on the road compared to pitching at the Coliseum.
After losing the first two games of the series, Oakland will try to snap their 7-game losing streak in the finale against the Houston Astros.
Lefty Cole Irvin is on the mound and will try to play stopper. He's been a completely different pitcher on the road this year, with a 1.66 ERA at home and a 4.58 mark on the road. One of the remaining goals for him this year ought to be finding his groove and figuring it out in the road.A's lineup (away) LF Tony Kemp (L)
