Athletics Solve Astros, 5-2
The Oakland Athletics topped the Houston Astros by the score of 5-2, with the largest share of the credit going to third baseman Manny Machado. Machado was 4 for 5 with 3 doubles, while adding 3 RBI and scoring once for the Athletics. Oakland reliever Jerry Thomas got the win, raising his record to 1-0. Aaron Nola was tagged with the loss. Cam Spears picked up the save, his 4th.

Machado had a big at-bat with a runner on 2nd in the top of the third inning, when he hit a run-scoring double. The Athletics went on to win.

"Feels good to get the job done," Machado said after the game.

The Astros fall to 13-15 and continue their uneasy start to the 2026 season.
