Houston whitewashed the A’s 15–0 on Monday so what did Oakland do on Tuesday? Only hang 21 runs on the ‘Stros and even the series with a statement win, 21–7.
Marcus Semien, Khris Davis, Matt Olson, and Sean Murphy all homered for Oakland, which chased Wade Miley after retiring just one batter. Those four guys combined to drive in 14 runs.
Nice for Tanner Roark to pick up a win on a night he didn’t have his best stuff. He gave up eight hits and five runs before departing in the sixth inning. Of course, it isn’t always easy to pitch with a gigantic lead and half-hour breaks in between innings.
The Indians and Rays won so all Oakland did was keep pace in the Wild Card, which it is still clinging to in the last playoff spot.
Houston missed a chance to go a game up on New York, which lost a one-run game to the AL’s worst Detroit Tigers.
After two explosive games for at least one offense each, Thursday’s finale could be a pitcher’s duel. Justin Verlander starts for Houston and Homer Bailey will take it for the A’s. Bailey has been good but I doubt he’ll out-duel Verlander, who is closing on a second Cy Young.

Free Oakland Athletics vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction: Verlander.
He won’t be worth the price tag but I do think he gets it done in a fairly close game. I’m not likely touching this game.
