Astros-Athletics Preview

(AP) -- The Oakland Athletics weren't very welcoming to the AL West newcomers in 2013, winning 15 of 19 meetings en route to their second straight division title.

With Sonny Gray seeking his third straight victory, the Athletics hope to begin a similar run of success against the Houston Astros as they open a three-game series Friday night.

Last season, Oakland (10-5) won the first 10 matchups after Houston (5-11) had moved from the NL Central. In winning 15 of 19 in the season series, the A's batted .277 - 23 points higher than their season average - while their starters posted a 2.84 ERA.
