HOUSTON -- Brandon Moss was having a frustrating night before the ninth inning. Mired in an 0-for-14 rut, Moss turned things around on one pitch. He hit a go-ahead single during a six-run rally in the ninth inning that sent the Oakland Athletics to a 7-4 victory over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night. Josh Reddick homered for the AL West-leading As and Yoenis Cespedes had three hits, including two doubles. "It had not been a very good day until that last at-bat," Moss said. "I was just trying to battle, stay on the ball a little bit. Get on base any way I could. If I got a good pitch to hit, hit it hard." Oakland trailed 4-1 in the ninth before pinch-hitter Alberto Callaspo had a two-run single off closer Chad Qualls (1-2). After Houston couldnt turn a potential game-ending double play on John Jasos grounder, Jed Lowrie walked and Cespedes tied it with a single. Moss ended his slump with the RBI single off Tony Sipp and then Josh Donaldson hit a two-run double off Jose Veras. "We always have confidence in him," Oakland manager Bob Melvin said of Moss. "Hes played himself into a role here this year where hes getting at-bats against left-handers, too, and doing some damage, and no more than that one right there." Evan Scribner (1-0) got the win and Sean Doolittle pitched the ninth for his 16th save. "They just found some holes when they needed to and hit the ball on the screws when they needed to," Qualls said. "I just didnt get it done." Marwin Gonzalez homered off the left-field foul pole in the first inning to give the Astros a 1-0 lead. Kike Hernandez had an RBI triple as part of a two-run fifth and an RBI double in seventh to give the Astros the 4-1 lead. "Any time you lose games in the eighth or ninth inning, those are tough games to lose," Houston manager Bo Porter said. "We were in position to win the ballgame and just were not able to close it out." Astros starter Scott Feldman allowed one run and five hits in seven innings. He rebounded after one of his worst outings of the season Thursday at Oakland in which he gave up six runs in 5 1-3 innings. As starter Jeff Samardzija gave up four runs and six hits with seven strikeouts in 6 2-3 innings. "Im not happy with how I pitched, but to keep it close and give these guys a chance, sometimes thats all I need," Samardzija said. TRAINERS ROOM Athletics: Outfielder Coco Crisp, who has missed the last two games with a neck strain, had an MRI on his neck Monday. The exam showed no changes, As manager Bob Melvin said. Astros: Outfielder George Springer, who has been on the disabled list since July 20 with a right quad strain, took batting practice Tuesday. "Its big to be out here and just to get some swings," Springer said. ON DECK Right-hander Jason Hammel will try to get his first win with the As after going 0-3 with a 7.11 ERA in his first three starts since being acquired July 5 from the Cubs. Houston lefty Dallas Keuchel, who is 9-7 with a 3.11 ERA, will try to follow up a solid outing in a 2-0 loss to Miami in the final game of the three-game series Wednesday. OAKLAND NEVER OUT OF IT The win Tuesday was the As sixth this season when trailing after eight innings and was the second time the As scored at least six runs in the ninth this year after Oakland scored seven runs in the top of the ninth on April 25, also at Houston. A STREAK CONTINUED AND SNAPPED Houston second baseman Jose Altuve extended his hitting streak to 11 games with his RBI single in the fifth. The streak is Altuves second-longest of the season after a 12-game streak from May 8-21. Astros outfielder Robbie Grossman was 0 for his last 13 before a single in the fifth. Air Max Sneaker 2017 .

Prosecutors have not said who they believe pulled the trigger, although they have said they believe it was orchestrated by Hernandez.Investigators say the murder weapon was never found.In filings released by the court late Thursday afternoon, Hernandezs lawyers said he has a right to know if his fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins, has made any deals. The two have a daughter together. Prosecutors last week petitioned Garsh to grant Jenkins immunity to testify. The court has not said whether it was granted.Jenkins has pleaded not guilty to perjury for allegedly lying to the grand jury investigating LLloyds killing.dddddddddddd Prosecutors have said Jenkins lied dozens of times, including when she said she couldnt remember where she disposed of a box from the basement of their home that Hernandez allegedly told her to get rid of.Jenkins lawyer did not immediately return an emailed request for comment.Hernandezs lawyers also asked the judge to let them call David Greenblatt, a doctor who is an expert in PCP. Both sides have said Wallace and Ortiz were seen smoking PCP on the night of June 15, 2013. Prosecutors previously opposed calling Greenblatt as a witness, saying his testimony will be irrelevant because the two smoked the PCP more than 27 hours before the killing happened.Greenblatt says in an affidavit filed with the court that symptoms of PCP psychosis can include aggressive or violent behaviour, homicidal tendencies and impaired memory. He also says the symptoms can last for many days.Ortiz and Wallace have pleaded not guilty to murder charges. Their cases have not yet gone to trial.Hernandez was in court on Thursday as Garsh, along with Hernandezs defence team and prosecutors, reviewed prospective jurors written questionnaires. The sides raised concerns about hundreds of prospective jurors, referring to them by their juror numbers.One prospective juror answered that Hernandez was their favourite player. Assistant District Attorney William McCauley said that raised the question of whether the person could be fair and impartial, but defence lawyer Michael Fee said it could just be that the person admired Hernandez, and that does not disqualify them. Garsh agreed to bring the person in for further questioning.She is expected question individual jurors starting Friday. ' ' '
