Scott Kazmir threw seven innings of shutout ball, but the A's continued to have more bullpen problems in Friday night's loss to the Astros...
The A's open their home series against the upstart Astros with Marcus Semien leading off and Ben Zobrist back after missing four starts.
The A's season doesn't have any dramatic highs or lows through 17 games and they remain a question mark going forward.
