Eric Sogard's game-tying RBI single in the ninth followed by Sam Fuld's two-run shot vaulted the A's past the Astros, giving them a 5-4 victory.
Coco Crisp is leading off, but he'll be reserved for offense as Sam Fuld is slated for center field in the A's rubber match in Houston.
The A's needed a roster spot for Wednesday's starter, but the team is taking steps to book a return trip soon for Nate Freiman.
