Athletics-Astros Preview

(AP) -- Mired in their first losing streak, the Oakland Athletics will try to get back on track with another dominant performance against the Houston Astros.

The A's swept the Astros this past weekend and will try to extend their win streak in the series to seven while earning their 11th victory in 13 all-time games in Houston on Thursday night.

Oakland (13-8) was off to its best start since 1990 before a three-game sweep this week against a red-hot Texas team. The A's had just two singles and Josh Donaldson's double in a 3-0 loss in Wednesday's finale.
