Astros Fall To A's

By  | 

HOUSTON -- Jason Kendall's r-b-i single in the top of the
eleventh inning lifted the Oakland Athletics over Houston 6-to-5.
Eric Chavez and Marco Scutaro (SKOO'-tuh-roh) homered for the
A's, who took two of three in the series. Oakland has won five of
its last six.
Each team used seven pitchers. Alan Embree went two innings for
the victory while the loss went to Brian Moehler.
Astros shortstop Adam Everett fractured his right leg in a
collision with left fielder Carlos Lee in the fourth inning. He'll
miss four to eight weeks.
