The Athletics trailed the Houston Astros 2-0 in the American League Division Series entering Game 3, but Oakland got Wednesday’s game off to a hot start.
The A’s hit four solo home runs through their first five innings to take a 4-2 lead. Yes, you read that right.
The action started in the first with second basemen Tommy La Stella going yard for the game’s first lead.
The Astros took a 2-1 lead after their first turn on offense, but the A’s responded in the second, fourth and fifth thanks to dingers from Mark Canha, Matt Olson and Marcus Semien.
Will the A’s hold on?
