Athletics

The A's had the components to avoid a sweep to the Astros, but as has been the case too often this season, victory found a way to elude them.
In an even battle all game long, the A's were able to keep pace and take the lead, but Tyler Clippard gave it up in the ninth vs. the Astros...
The uniqueness and versatility of Jesse Chavez has him back in the starting rotation for the A's with Kendall Graveman being sent down to Triple-A.
