The Oakland Athletics suffered their ninth consecutive loss to the Houston Astros, further extending their losing streak. The A’s, currently with a 27-73 record, are on track to have one of the worst seasons in MLB history. The game started with bad news as manager Mark Kotsay had to scratch Brent Rooker from the lineup due to illness. The disappointing performance continued as the A’s struggled to prevent the Astros from scoring runs. In contrast, Tony Kemp had a solid performance for Oakland. The A’s managed to narrow the gap, but ultimately lost 6-4. With two more games scheduled against the Astros, it seems likely that the A’s will conclude the week with a dismal record.
