A's snaps 4-game losing streak with win over Houston

HOUSTON — Brett Lawrie hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the sixth, and the Oakland bullpen combined for 4 2-3 scoreless innings as the A's snapped a four-game losing streak with a 2-1 victory over the Houston Astros on Monday night.

The loss snapped Houston's five-game winning streak.

Lawrie's hit came off Will Harris who came on in relief of Joe Thatcher (0-1), who gave up an infield single and two walks to load the bases with no outs.

Edward Mujica (2-1) went 1 2-3 innings for the win, Evan Scribner threw two innings and Tyler Clippard pitched the ninth for his fourth save.

Harris escaped further damage in the sixth, getting Sam Fuld to ground back to the pitcher for a force at home and then Eric Sogard to hit into a double play.
