"Before dropping the series opener against the Houston Astros on Monday night, the Oakland Athletics had caught a glimmer of hope with consecutive series victories over postseason contenders Cleveland and St. Louis. Oakland (57-74) has been besieged by injuries, using the disabled list a club-record", sports.yahoo.com
"The rookie righthander completed 51⁄3 scoreless innings, considerable improvement from the previous two starts, in which he allowed a total of 13 runs. Relying on his four-seam fastball rather than his sinker and better mixing his five pitches, a more aggressive Musgrove yielded only three hits and none in the same inning. Three relievers combined to finish the cumulative shutout for the Astros (69-62), who moved back within two games of the second American League wild-card spot. Astros manager A.J. Hinch said the outing marked the most aggressively Musgrove (2-2) has pitched since either the pitcher's Aug. 2 debut (41⁄3 scoreless innings of relief against the Blue Jays) or his first major league start on Aug. 7 (seven innings of one-run ball against the Rangers). Luke Gregerson, who hadn't pitched in 11 days because of an ankle injury, induced an inning-ending double play on the second pitch he threw to Yonder Alonso. After Gurriel legged out a two-out", www.houstonchronicle.com
"Astros blank A’s as Sean Manaea leaves with injury HOUSTON — As if the A’s starting-pitching woes weren’t difficult enough, rookie Sean Manaea left early in Monday’s 6-0 loss to the Astros at Minute Maid Park. [...] been on the (disabled list) once, and to me, it just feels like I’m letting everyone down. The Astros drew two bases-loaded walks off Manaea in the second inning, by Jake Marisnick and George Springer, to score their first runs. Jose Altuve homered and rookie starter Joe Musgrove bounced back after two horrible outings to combine with three relievers on a four-hitter. Musgrove (2-2) struck out seven, walked three and allowed three hits over 51/3 innings after allowing 13 runs over his previous two starts. Musgrove retired 11 of the first 13 batters before Khris Davis singled with two outs in the fourth for the A’s first hit. Houston closed to two games back of the second AL wild-card spot with the win and Baltimore’s", www.sfgate.com
"Read 'Astros' Musgrove, relievers combine to 4-hit A's in 6-0 win' on Yahoo Sports Canada. Jose Altuve homered, Joe Musgrove and three relievers combined on a four-hitter and the Houston Astros beat the Oakland Athletics 6-0 on Monday night. Musgrove (2-2) struck out seven, walked three and allowed three hits over 5 1/3 innings, and then Luke Gregerson, Pat Neshek and Brad Peacock closed things out.

"The Oakland Athletics suddenly have the look of a team that might relish playing the spoiler down the stretch. The Athletics will try their hand at another playoff contender when they open a three-game series at the Houston Astros on Monday...", www.wptz.com
"In the days since struggling for a second consecutive start, Joe Musgrove has worked on mechanical adjustments he feels will help get him back on track in Monday night's series opener against the Oakland Athletics. Musgrove lacked his typical command in his last two starts at Baltimore and Pittsburgh, and the rookie righthander was lit up for a combined 13 runs on 19 hits in 91⁄3 innings. With little margin for error in a crowded American League wild-card race, the Astros need the version of Musgrove who allowed only three runs in his first 181⁄3 innings. Will Harris, like many former LSU products in the major Leagues, hasn't been able to get back to Baton Rouge and help the thousands affected by flooding that left 13 dead and resulted in more than 100,000 requests for federal aid. In a campaign spearheaded by White Sox pitcher Anthony Ranaudo, 'Pitch in with Former Tigers' was recently started to help raise money for those in need. [...] the", www.houstonchronicle.com
"HOUSTON -- After six games serving as the designated hitter or as a pinch hitter off the bench, Yuli Gurriel is poised to make his debut defensively for the Astros this week against the Athletics, perhaps as early as Monday night in the series opener.", www.foxsports.com
