8/24/2018 @ MINNESOTA  
8/25/2018 @ MINNESOTA  
HOUSTON: 2017: 101-61, first place, won World Series.
MANAGER: A.J. Hinch (fourth season).
ADDITIONS: RHP Gerrit Cole, RHP Joe Smith, RHP Hector Rondon.
SUBTRACTIONS: DH Carlos Beltran, RHP Luke Gregerson, RHP Joe Musgrove, RHP Mike Fiers, RHP Michael Feliz, INF Colin Moran.
OUTLOOK: With almost everyone back from last year's championship team, the Astros fully expect to contend for another title. They have a right to be confident with Altuve leading a potent lineup that includes Springer, the World Series MVP, and Correa, a young All-Star shortstop coming off his best season. Their rotation is one of the best in baseball, with Cy Young Award winners Keuchel and Verlander leading the group and new acquisition Cole and young star McCullers following that 1-2 punch. Barring debilitating injuries, the Astros should win the AL West and have an excellent chance to repeat as World Series champs.
OAKLAND: 2017: 75-87, fifth place.
MANAGER: Bob Melvin (eighth season).
ADDITIONS: OF Stephen Piscotty, C Jonathan Lucroy, OF Dustin Fowler, RHP Trevor Cahill, RHP Emilio Pagan, RHP Yusmeiro Petit, LHP Ryan Buchter.
SUBTRACTIONS: INF Ryon Healy, RHP Jesse Hahn, OF Jaycob Brugman.
OUTLOOK: The A's have followed up three straight playoff appearances with last-place finishes the past three seasons. There are signs of a potential turnaround but rebuilding will still take some time, especially in a division with the defending World Series champions and other possible contenders. The bullpen should be improved with the additions of Pagan, Petit and Buchter. The strength of the team is power. Davis leads the way with 85 homers the past two seasons, ranking second in the majors during that span to Giancarlo Stanton's 86. Olson made a big splash with 24 homers in 189 at-bats, a rate topped over a whole season only twice ' when Mark McGwire and Barry Bonds each set the single-season home run record. The A's added depth to the lineup this spring by signing Lucroy. One of the most intriguing players will be Fowler, who played one inning in the majors for the Yankees before blowing out his knee and then getting traded to Oakland for pitcher Sonny Gray. Fowler adds needed athleticism and defense in the outfield as the A's look to build a foundation for the future.
A's would tie for first with win over Astros

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Houston Astros will turn to their hottest pitcher, left-hander Dallas Keuchel, when the Oakland Athletics make a bid to move into a tie for first place in the American League West on Saturday afternoon.

On Friday night, Oakland's Nick Martini tied the game with a ninth-inning double and Matt Olson won it with a leadoff home run in the 10th, allowing the A's (73-49) to move within one game of the Astros (74-48) atop the West with a 4-3 triumph.

Keuchel (9-9, 3.43 ERA) was a 16-2 winner the last time he pitched in Oakland in May, and that was before he really got rolling.

The 30-year-old went 4-1 with a 1.65 ERA in five starts in July, and has yet to lose in August, going 1-0 with a 2.25 ERA in three outings.

He suffered an 8-1 shellacking at home in April in a game in which Oakland's Matt Chapman, Chad Pinder and Mark Canha homered.

He is 6-5 with a 2.78 ERA in his career against the A's, and Saturday's start will be his 21st meeting with Oakland, his 19th as a starter. Keuchel is 1-1 with 4.20 ERA in two starts against the A's this season.

Keuchel will have to deal with the knowledge that no matter how well he does, the A's might still prevail against the Houston bullpen.

Olson's homer in the series opener was Oakland's eighth walk-off hit of the season. The A's lead the majors in runs scored in the eighth inning, and Friday's ninth-inning run was their 54th of the season, tops in the AL.

Oakland is 11-5 in extra-inning games and a major-league-best 26-10 in one-run decisions. Each of the A's last four wins has been by one run.

A's closer Blake Treinen has helped close the door on most of Oakland's close wins this season. He was the winner in Friday's contest, holding the Astros scoreless in the top of the 10th before Olson's homer in the bottom of the inning.

The win was his sixth of the season. He's also recorded 32 saves.

The A's will counter Keuchel with right-hander Trevor Cahill (4-2, 3.39), who has struggled in two earlier meetings with the Astros this season.

Houston ran up an 8-4 home win over the A's in April when Cahill allowed four runs in six innings.

He later had to be pulled in the fourth inning of an eventual 6-4 A's win at Houston in July.

Cahill has gone 1-1 with a 5.82 ERA in four career games, including three starts, against the Astros.

Astros center fielder George Springer, who homered off Cahill in the April meeting, returned from a stint on the disabled list to go 1-for-5 in Friday's loss.

The Astros have held solo leadership in the AL West since June 14. Their biggest lead in the past two months was six games.

The A's, meanwhile, were 10 games out after a 6-5 loss at Houston on July 10. They have gone 22-8 since that date, while the Astros have struggled to a 12-16 mark.

Not counting the first month of the season, the A's haven't held or shared first place in the AL West since Aug. 25, 2014.
