Houston Astros vs. Oakland Athletics, second game in the series. Last night the Astros won the first game of this series. The first game was a blow to the Athletics. The home team did not allow the Athletics to score runs. So far Houston Astros has not lost a single game at home this month. The Athletics do not have much hope of reaching the playoffs. But that does not mean that the team stops winning games.
