HOUSTON -- One night after Chris Young broke out of a slump, Josh Donaldson had a big night of his own. Botas Tipo Ugg Rojas . Donaldson had four hits and the Oakland Athletics beat the Houston Astros 11-5 Saturday night. "My goal every day is to go out there and put good at-bats together," Donaldson said. "The last two games or so I have felt a little bit more overaggressive. I was trying to be a little more patient tonight and get a good pitch to hit. They fell behind me a couple times, and I was able to get a pitch to hit." Donaldson said he and hitting coach Chili Davis worked on a few things before the game. He tied a career-high with four hits and was a triple shy of the cycle. "He went through one little period where he was down some, but hes been consistent all year on base every time tonight and getting good swings almost every single time," Oakland manager Bob Melvin said. "Theres a reason hes hitting in the middle of the order for us." Chris Young had three hits and drove in two as Oaklands bats came alive for a season-high 18 hits, and the As scored their most runs in a month. Every Oakland hitter drove in at least one run. Brandon Moss had a home run as well for the As, who improved to 8-0 this season against the Astros. As starter A.J. Griffin (5-3) allowed four runs on five hits with seven strikeouts in 5 2-3 innings. He gave up three home runs. "Other than the home runs, I felt all right," Griffin said. "Those home runs happen, so obviously, you have a little bitter taste in your mouth at the end of the day. I made it 5 2-3, and I always would like to make it 6, 7, 8. It was a great team win. I just tried to keep us in the game and keep making pitches." Jason Castro and Matt Dominguez each belted two home runs for the Astros. It was the first time two Houston teammates have had multi-home run games since July 25, 2005, when Craig Biggio and Lance Berkman each had two. After Castro gave the Astros a 1-0 lead in the first with a two-out solo home run to right, Oakland responded with six runs in the second, sending 12 batters to the plate. Seth Smith and Donaldson led off with back-to-back singles before Moss walked to load the bases. Young laced a two-run double off the wall in left, and Eric Sogard followed with an RBI single to make it 3-1. Adam Rosales grounded out to shortstop to extend the lead to 4-1. Coco Crisp upped the lead to 5-1 with a run-scoring single. Yoenis Cespedes walked with two outs, and Smith singled up the middle to make it 6-1. Astros starter Lucas Harrell was pulled after walking Donaldson to load the bases again. Edgar Gonzalez ended the inning by getting Moss to pop up to short. Dominguez cut Oaklands lead to 6-2 with a solo home run to left to lead off the third. Oakland answered by scoring four times in the fourth. Jaso had an RBI double and Cespedes followed with a run-scoring single. Donaldson and Moss hit back-to-back home runs with two outs in the inning to make it 10-2. Castro added his second homer of the game - another solo shot to right -- to lead off the bottom of the fourth to cut Oaklands lead to 10-3. Castro plated Jose Altuve with an RBI single in the sixth to get Houston within 10-4. Dominguez hit his second home run with one out in the seventh -- a solo shot off the facade in left - to trim the lead to 10-5 off Kideki Okajima. Donaldson put the As back up by six with an RBI double in the eighth, scoring Smith. Harrell (3-6), who has lost four straight, allowed six runs on six hits with three walks and one strikeout in a season-low 1 2-3 innings. Harrell has allowed five or more runs in three of his last five starts, and in two starts against Oakland this season, the right-hander has allowed 14 runs in six innings. Houston manager Bo Porter said Harrell did not have his good stuff, and Oakland put good swings on him when he put the ball in the strike zone. "I think it starts with command," Porter said. "When youre a sinker ball pitcher, youre one pitch away from a double-play and getting out of it. You have to lock into it, get the ground ball, and minimize the damage." Harrell said his command was not off. "Theres pretty much only two things to say about the game," Harrell said. "Its embarrassing and its frustrating. Thats pretty much all I have to say." NOTES: Oakland SS Jed Lowrie, who was out of the lineup for the third straight game, took ground balls and hit batting practice before Saturdays game. Lowrie has been out since being hit by a pitch on his right foot Tuesday. . Oakland OF Chris Youngs three-run home run Friday night snapped an Oakland-record streak of 15 consecutive solo home runs by the As. . RHP Bartolo Colon takes the mound for Oakland against Houston LHP Dallas Keuchel in the series finale Sunday. . Houston entered the game leading the Majors with 61 double plays turned. Botas Ugg Bebe Online . PETERSBURG, Fla. Botas Ugg Australia Baratas . Jane Virtanen scored two, and Alex Roach and Elliott Peterson rounded out the offence for the Hitmen (40-15-6). Brady Brassart chipped in with three assists. Colton McCarthy scored twice, Brayden Point had a goal and two assists, and Jack Rodewald also scored for the Warriors (15-35-9), who were 2 for 5 on the power play. .Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has drawn on his Syracuse connections once again by hiring Rob Moore to take over as receivers coach. Welcome to the last day of the 2016 season ... or is it? Depending on how things turn out, the Indians and Tigers may need to make up last Thursdays rainout with the possibility of playing another game on Tuesday and maybe even on Wednesday if theres a four-way tie for the American League wild-card berths.Lets try this again.Welcome to the last Sunday of the regular season! As has been tradition the last several campaigns, all 15 games are scheduled to start about the same time. The purpose is so all teams in games with playoff implications have to play their regulars and not have the luxury of backing into a playoff berth then scratching their scheduled starter. So for the 179th and final time this year, heres what you need to navigate through the final full slate of the 2016 regular season.PitchingEliteMax Scherzer is scheduled to take the hill for the Washington Nationals in a home tilt against the Miami Marlins. The Nationals will open the playoffs on Friday, meaning Scherzer will be working on regular rest for Game 1. The question is: How long will he be allowed to stay in on Sunday? Scherzer is one win away from the magic 20, so while its highly unlikely the veteran righty tosses his usual seven-or-so frames, hurling five or six keeps him sharp while availing the chance of a win. In terms of DFS, the risk Scherzers outing is cut short takes him out of cash play. Getting some exposure in tournaments is fine unless the club announces a pitch limit.Chris Sale takes the hill at U.S. Cellular Field for the last time. No, I have no inside on an impending trade of the controversial lefty. As of Nov. 1, the venue commonly called The Cell will become Guaranteed Rate Field, forcing writers to finally learn how to spell guarantee properly. The Chicago White Sox have nothing on the line other than pride, so theres a good chance Sale pitches without any restrictions. This means the southpaw is the clear top choice for DFS, especially since the opposing Minnesota Twins fan at an elevated clip with a left-hander on the hill.Justin Verlander takes the ball for the Detroit Tigers in Game 161, with a good chance hell be pitching for the need to play the final game on Monday. The veteran right-hander takes the hill at Turner Field for the final game played in the venue as the Atlanta Braves will move to the newly constructed SunTrust Park next season. As has been well-documented in this space, the Braves have been one of the top offensive teams since the break, but history has taught us to lean on the side of the team with greater motivation. As such, Verlander is in play for all DFS formats, though Sale has the higher ceiling.SolidThe Los Angeles Dodgers are locked into their playoff spot, so other than playing spoiler for the archrival San Francisco Giants, they have nothing to play for. Kenta Maeda gets the start for the NL West champs, and since he doesnt toss more than five or six innings anyway, hes not a DFS option.Kyle Hendricks makes his last regular-season start on the road against the Cincinnati Reds. The Chicago Cubs have stated their Cy Young hopeful will be limited to 100 pitches, likely meaning five innings, but cracking the door open in the event a sixth frame helps the rightys cause for personal gains, perhaps to edge his ERA back under 2.00 or to increase the chance for his 17th win. Because the win is in play, using Hendricks in cash is viable, though he lacks the upside for GPP action.As of this writing, the Baltimore Orioles havent clinched a wild-card berth, meaning Kevin Gausman will have no restrictions against the New York Yankees in the Bronx. There are better plays on paper, but the motivation factor lifts Gausman to GPP consideration.With the Boston Red Sox locked into a series with the Cleveland Indians, Sundays finale is mostly a tune-up game for David Price, though there is some motivation to win for home field against the Tribe. Still, its hard to imagine the southpaw working any more than five frames, despite this game being important for the visiting Toronto Blue Jays.Assuming the Giants hhave not clinched a date in Citi Field for the wild-card game, Matt Moore will be taxed with getting them there. Botas Ugg Bebe. The lefty faces a Dodgers club more concerned with getting ready for their NLDS meeting with the Nationals. Add Moore to the list of high-upside tournament options working with no restrictions.With so much in flux on the final Sunday, its tough to pinpoint viable contrarian options. Sean Manaea fits the bill as the Oakland Athletics take on the Seattle Mariners in a game the Mariners need to win. Theres a chance Oakland wants to limit the rookies innings, but is there a huge risk leaving him in for six, maybe seven stanzas? The Mariners are tough, but Manaea has the platoon edge over most of the better Seattle sticks. If youre looking to throw a dart at a big pull on the final day off GPPs, Manaea is an intriguing option.As tempting as the narrative is to use Felix Hernandez in a big game, the King isnt missing many bats, while the Athletics are hard to punchout. Therefore, its best to fade the Mariners right-hander for DFS purposes.StreamersJerad Eickhoff is owned in only 46 percent of ESPN leagues, so theres a chance hes available for those in leagues with daily moves. Facing a Mets team thats coming off a playing-clinching win, the Phillies curveball specialist will likely face a lesser lineup. Not only is Eickhoff a great spot starter, hes in the mix for DFS too.Matt Koch earned another start after impressing the Arizona Diamondbacks brass in his first start against the Nationals. This time the 25-year-old rookie draws the San Diego Padres at Chase Field. The lineup the Friars are using is much different from the one contributing the majority of their near-league-leading strikeouts. Still, its not very dangerous, so if you need a miracle, Koch could be your savior.The Texas Rangers have nothing to play for, but since it will be a week before Martin Perez throws again, theres no reason to restrict him against the Tampa Bay Rays. Especially if you need punch outs, consider the lefty an option.AvoidIf there was ever a day to pull out all the stops, its today. That said, you need to be in dire straits to use German Marquez at Coors Field or Chase Whitley in Arlington.HittingThink of it this way: You only have one more chance to agonize whether to get exposure to or fade Coors Field this season. With Marquez working for the hosts and the bullpen collectively doing the honors for the guests, the runs should be crossing the plate left and right. The left-handed unit for the Rockies is in the best spot, so Charlie Blackmon, Carlos Gonzalez and David Dahl get their final of many mentions this season. The Brewers dont have many lefties to deploy against Marquez other than Scooter Gennett,?but in that venue, it doesnt matter. Ryan Braun, Chris Carter and Domingo Santana are all candidates to end the season with a round-tripper.If the White Sox wanted to sit their regulars, theyd have been doing it already. Admittedly, they dont really have any prospects to look at, so theres no reason Adam Eaton, Melky Cabrera, Jose Abreu and Todd Frazier wont be playing against still promising but raw Jose Berrios. The Twins rookie has surrendered 12 homers in just 51 1/3 major league innings.With their come-from-behind victory Saturday, the St. Louis Cardinals are still battling for the right to travel to Queens to take on the Mets. This puts Matt Carpenter and Brandon Moss in a great spot with the platoon bump over Ryan Vogelsong. Righties Aledmys Diaz, Stephen Piscotty, Jedd Gyorko and the rejuvenated Yadier Molina are considerations as well.Most likely to hit a homer: Hell have to do it against ground ball specialist Aaron Sanchez, but you know David Ortiz will be looking to leisurely stroll around the bases one last time ... in a regular-season affair.Most likely to steal a base: Lots of choices for this honor, so Ill close out the season with a personal favorite, Jose Peraza. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
