Tucker Slugs Athletics to 11-7 Win
A 5-RBI performance from Kyle Tucker, who is a two-time All-Star, helped the Oakland Athletics beat the Houston Astros, 11-7. At 45-48, the Athletics are currently second in the American League Western Division.

Tucker contributed a big hit, a grand slam home run, for Oakland in the top of the fifth. With his team trailing 4-3, Tucker took a fastball from Don Robinson and stroked the home run to right. His 12th home run of the season allowed the Athletics to leap in front, 7-4.

"It was a solid team effort and we'll try to keep this momentum going," Tucker told reporters after the game.
