MLB: Oakland 6, Houston 5

May 25, 2013 at 12:40 AM   |   Comments

HOUSTON, May 25 (UPI) -- Chris Young hit a three-run homer with one away in the ninth inning Friday, rallying Oakland to a 6-5 triumph over Houston.

The Athletics won for the sixth time in seven games, overcoming a five-run Houston fifth that seemed likely to be enough to bring the Astros a rare win.

Houston lost for the 34th time in 48 games this season.

Both John Jaso and Coco Crisp drew walks off Jose Veras (0-3) in the ninth before Young belted a 1-1 pitch over the wall in left.

The Astros then put two runners on with one out in the bottom half of the inning, but Grant Belfour retired the next two batters for his 10th save.

The win went to Pat Neshek (1-0), who worked the eighth inning.

Matt Dominguez hit a solo shot in Houston's five-run inning and J.D. Martinez added a three-run blast.
