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.
