*The Astros, Rockets, and Texans all played yesterday. They all lost. I saw someone on Twitter call it the Triple Frown and I have thought about that every ten minutes since. It was just an all-around brutal day in Houston.
*Jose Urquidy made his second start of the season and got through five scoreless innings and didn't allow a hit until the fifth frame. In the top of the sixth, Martin Maldanado grounded into a double play as Josh Reddick scored. With a 1-0 lead and no one worth getting excited about in the bullpen, Dusty Baker asked Urquidy for more. It did not work. A walk and a homerun from Matt Olson gave the A's a 2-1 lead and they held on to win, 3-1.
