On the A’s podcast with Joey:
#1 The A’s could very well sweep the Houston Astros on Sunday that’s not a three game sweep, but it would be a four-game sweep.
#2 The Astros have been the A’s toughest customer all season defeating the A’s in all the series they’ve met. The A’s have to get the pitching as well as good hitting to win those games.
#3 On Friday night, there were 10 home runs hit by contrast on Saturday afternoon. The A’s didn’t get a home run and the Astros got only one, but the A’s got the win on Saturday.
#4 The A’s got a important rally going in the bottom of the third inning with five runs scored the A’s starting pitcher Chris Bassitt pitched for six inning giving up eight hits and giving up three earned runs.
#5 On Sunday, the Houston Astros will start Zack Greinke (12-4, 2.91 ERA) vs. the A’s starter Brett Anderson (10-8, 3.95 ERA).
