A's host Astros with first place on the line

OAKLAND, Calif. -- First place in the American League West will be on the line for the Houston Astros and the Oakland Athletics when they meet as co-leaders in the finale of a three-game series Sunday afternoon.

The A's completed a climb from 10 games out July 10 to catch the Astros on Saturday with a 7-1 victory that featured brilliant pitching by right-hander Trevor Cahill and an eight-double assault on Astros' pitching.

The A's (74-49), who began the series two games behind, also won 4-3 in 10 innings Friday night to get within arm's length of the Astros (74-49) entering Saturday's matchup.
