BUENOS AIRES, July 30 (UPI) --Argentinean soccer player Carlos Tevez's father was released Tuesday after being kidnapped in Buenos Aires.

Segundo Tevez was driving his vehicle Tuesday morning in the Moron district near the capital when he was abducted. The identity of his assailant wasn't reported.

The striker, who plays for Juventus in Turin, Italy, had intended to return to his home country after hearing about the incident.

The team released a statement saying Carlos Tevez would remain in Turin after learning his father was safely released.

The athlete took to Facebook to announce the good news.

"Thank you all for the support as always. I tell you that my father is well, safe and sound. This is the most important!" he said.

Astros jump the Athletics

Robbie Grossman's two-run homer capped the six-run first inning that propelled the Houston Astros to an 8-1 win over the Oakland Athletics.

Six of Houston's eight hits came during the first-inning rally, which came against struggling A's starter Jason Hammel.

Hammel (0-4) has lost all four of his starts since he was acquired by Oakland in a deal that featured All-Star Jeff Samardzija. He was lit up in this one, departing with one out in the fifth inning after allowing all eight runs and two homers.

In contrast, Houston starter Dallas Keuchel (10-7) was superb en route to his first career win against Oakland in five tries. The left-hander yielded just a run on four hits over nine dominant innings.

Jon Singleton also homered for the Astros, while Jose Altuve extended his hit streak to 12 games with a single in the sixth.
