Astros edge A's in 11th, 5-4

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Robbie Grossman singled in two runs in the 11th inning, and the Houston Astros beat the Oakland Athletics 5-4 on Friday night to match their best start in eight years.

Chris Carter and Colby Rasmus drew walks off Eric O'Flaherty (0-2) to begin Houston's rally. After Hank Conger's sacrifice moved the runners over, Grossman lined a 3-0 pitch to left. Grossman had gone hitless in his previous four at-bats and was in a 0-for-9 funk before his clutch swing.

Jose Altuve added an RBI single, and that proved to be the difference after the A's scored twice in the bottom half against Pat Neshek.
