OAKLAND, Calif. Mens/Womens Nike Zoom Fly SP Breaking 2 Casual White/Bright Crimson AJ9282-106/AJ8229-106 For Sale . -- The Houston Astros have a winning vibe during the September stretch run.Tony Kemp noticed it before Tuesday nights 2-1, 10-inning win against the Oakland Athletics.Before the game today, everyone seemed loose, Kemp said. No ones really panicking. Everyones just having fun this last stretch.George Springer hit a go-ahead single in the top of the 10th inning. Kemp, who tied it with a pinch-hit double in the seventh, got things going with a leadoff double against Sean Doolittle (2-3) and Jake Marisnick sacrificed him to third to bring up Springer.Chris Devenski (4-4) struck out four in 3 2/3 innings of relief for the win, and Ken Giles escaped a bases-loaded jam and closed it out for his 13th save.

Marisnick was initially called safe on his bunt and that was overturned, but Teoscar Hernandez -- aboard on a single -- got to return to first base rather than be called out on a double play because he reacted to the original, incorrect call. Oakland briefly protested before withdrawing it, both managers said afterward.It ended up just being a really weird play, Hinch said.Sean Manaea struck out seven with two walks over six scoreless innings. The lefty allowed three hits in his second start since missing 15 days with a strained muscle in his upper back.That was one of his best outings of the season and to squander it is incredibly frustrating, Doolittle said.Oakland has lost six straight to the Astros, its longest skid ever in the series.Jake Smolinskis sharp single through a shifted infield with one out in the sixth was the As first hit against Astros starter Joe Musgrove, who then loaded the bases and was done for the night.The rookie right-hander, who beat the As earlier this season when he pitched 5 1/3 scoreless innings, gave up two hits and one run, struck out four and walked three.Devenski relieved Musgrove and allowed Stephen Vogts RBI groundout.Its incredible, Musgrove said. This teams got so much fight in it.VOGT RECOGNIZEDVogt, the Oakland catcher, was named the 2016 Dave Stewart Community Service Award winner and will be honored before Wednesday afternoons series finale.

Rasmus is in an 0-for-17 stretch. No doubt hes had a rough season on a lot of levels, said Hinch, who still expects Rasmus will contribute down the stretch.Athletics: RF Khris Davis was a late scratch because of a stomach bug that had him throwing up during the day.
