White's home run came off of Jeurys Familia with one out in the ninth, as that handed the former New York Mets reliever his first loss with Oakland. It also handed the red-hot Athletics just their second series loss in their past 21 series, as they fall to 2.5 games behind Houston in the AL West Division. They do still hold a 5.5-game lead over the Seattle Mariners for the second AL Wild Card spot.
Roberto Osuna earned his second win after pitching a scoreless ninth inning in which he gave up a hit. The win for the Astros was their seventh in the past eight games, as George Springer and Alex Bregman had two hits and an RBI apiece.
Dallas Keuchel struggled in the seventh inning, when the Astros lost their lead, as Brad Peacock took over and hit Stephen Piscotty in the arm with a pitch, which forced in a run with the bases loaded. The right-handed starter for Houston allowed three runs on eight hits over six innings, recording five strikeouts along the way.
Trevor Cahill got the call for the Athletics and surrendered four runs, three of which were earned, on five hits and walked a season-high six batters over just 3.1 innings. It was a tough performance in the 300th appearance of his career. His day ended in the fourth inning after he gave up Springer's RBI single and walked Bregman to load the bases. The A's will return home on Thursday night to start another important series with the Seattle Mariners. The Astros stay home to start a four-game weekend series against the Los Angeles Angels.
