Springer has a hit in each of his three major-league games. Altuve, Castro only other Astros with hits in each of last three games.
Clemens pitch went between Lowrie's legs. Lowrie flew out to end 3rd inning. Lowrie is the only A's player who doesn't have a walk or hit.
The A's have scored more times in their first 2 innings tonight (8) than the Astros have scored over their last 4 games total (7).
Jarred Cosart just allowed seven runs in 1/3. And he still doesn't have the worst ERA on the Astros.
The Astros had two starters deliver outings of 1/3 IP last year: Humber and Bedard. No Astros SP had done it since 2004 before then.
And Reddick hits one out to make it 7-0 #Athletics. #Astros starter Cosart has gotten one out and he's done for the night. #Wow #Fail
Astros scored three in top of the fifth to cut A's lead to 8-3. Then promptly allowed two in bottom half on Crisp's two-run blast.
George Springer with his first major-league RBI with a hard-hit single.
Clemens was not happy with Lowrie's earlier bunt. Throws at him.
Cespedes goes yard, making it 8-0 for the A's ... hapless Houston in the house
First inning finally over. Athletics 7, Astros 0. Brutal.
Jarred Cosart: 7 ER, 3 H (2 of them HRs), 4 walks, 0 strikeouts, 1/3 IP. Good grief.
Follow @AlSaracevic and @SteveKronerSF to follow the A's vs. Astros tonight from Oakland. A's jump to 5-0 lead in first inning. #SFGate

The A's had seven runs in the first inning. The Astros have seven runs in their last 33 innings - and counting.

ICYMI: George Springer, playing in just his third career game, is hitting cleanup for Astros.
That may have been the worst pitching performance I've ever witnessed... Cosart's line: 1/3 inning, 3 hits, 3 BBs, 2 HRs, 7 earned runs.
Well ... At least Jarred Cosart got one guy out. The Astros bullpen didn't have to do ALL of the work tonight.
Chris Carter, hitting .122 on year, has a sac fly for just his second RBI of season. Astros with third run in 5th. 8-3 A's now.
Clemens couldn't even hit a guy on purpose. That kind of a night for Astros.
George Springer is fitting in with Astros. He's hitting .182. Team batting average is .188.
.@susanslusser followers: Big night in Oakland so far. A's hang 7 runs on Astros in the first. Sonny Gray cruises through first two frames.
Cosart is the first pitcher in 2014 to go 1/3 IP in a start. Nine pitchers did it last year across majors. Pirates also had two SPs do it.
