Athletics-Astros Preview

(AP) -- While Jeff Samardzija has been solid during his short time with the Oakland Athletics, Jason Hammel has struggled.

Hammel looks to avoid a fourth loss in as many starts for the visiting A's in Wednesday's decisive series finale against the Houston Astros.

After allowing four runs in 6 2-3 innings before the A's rallied to win 7-4 on Tuesday, Samardzija is 2-1 with a 3.19 ERA in five starts since Oakland (66-40) acquired he and Hammel (0-3, 7.11 ERA) from the Chicago Cubs on July 4.
