Athletics Lose to Astros, 5-1
The Houston Astros picked up a win at Minute Maid Park, knocking off the Oakland Athletics, 5-1. Starting pitcher José Bautista played a key role in the triumph. Bautista went 6 innings to notch the win. He scattered 5 hits, walked 3, and struck out 5. His record improves to 3-1. The Athletics fall to 11-17 and continue their unimpressive start to the 2026 season.

The Astros got a big at-bat from second baseman Jim Sánchez. For the game, Sánchez was 1 for 3, while adding 2 RBI. In the bottom of the fourth, with the bases loaded, he stroked a 2-run single. His 2nd hit of the season gave Houston a 3-1 lead.

Sánchez called the win the result of "everyone being in sync."
