Game Recap: Lackluster Loss. A’s take Astros 8-3

Oakland wins game three. Stros go for series split tomorrow afternoon. The Houston Astros are World Champions. Sometimes even World Champions have off nights.

The Astros batters have the highest OPS in baseball over the past month, but the Tampa Bay Rays have the stingiest pitching, with a team ERA over the last week at just 1.31.
