Alonso's 3-run homer gives Athletics 7-4 win over Astros

Yonder Alonso hit a game-winning three-run homer to lift the Oakland Athletics to a 7-4 win over the Houston Astros on Friday night.

Stephen Vogt doubled to left center leading off the ninth off reliever Tony Sipp (0-1). After Coco Crisp was intentionally walked, Alonso homered to right off reliever Pat Neshek.

The Astros, who were expected to contend for the divisional title, lost for the eighth time in 10 games. They entered Friday tied for the league's worst record and haven't won consecutive games this season.

Ryan Madsen (1-0) pitched a scoreless ninth for Oakland. He was the fifth A's pitcher on the night.

Sean Manaea, a hard-throwing left-hander acquired from the Royals last season in the Ben Zobrist trade, allowed four runs on four hits and four walks in five-plus innings. He had three strikeouts and hit a batter in his major league debut.



Astros: RHP Lance McCullers (shoulder) will throw approximately 60 to 75 pitches in an extended spring training game on Monday in Florida, manager A.J. Hinch said. McCullers felt good after a rehab assignment on Wednesday and a bullpen session on Friday, Hinch said.

A's: RHP Henderson Alvarez (shoulder surgery), on a rehab assignment with High-A Stockton, Calif., will throw approximately 60 pitches or four innings for the Ports in Modesto on Saturday, manager Bob Melvin said. OF Sam Fuld (left shoulder), on the disabled list since the start of the season, will undergo surgery next month, Melvin said.


Astros: RHP Chris Devenski (0-0) will make his first major league start. The 25-year-old rookie is has excelled in six relief appearances, striking out 12 batters and allowing one run on 11 hits and one walk in 13 2/3 innings.

A's: RHP Jesse Hahn (0-0) had blister problems and started the season in the minors, going 0-1 with 2.04 ERA in four starts at Triple-A Nashville. He'll make his 2016 major league debut
