Right-hander Zack Greinke continued his dominance at San Francisco Bay Area
venues Sunday afternoon, helping the visiting Houston Astros avoid a series
sweep with a 4-1 victory over the Oakland Athletics.
Alex Bregman went 4-for-4 and belted his 30th home run of the season, a three-run shot in the fifth inning that erased a 1-0 deficit and allowed the Astros, who had lost the first three games of the series, to snap a five-game losing streak.
Greinke (13-4) held the A's to one run and four hits in seven innings en route to his third consecutive win since joining the Astros in a trade last month.
