Game Preview

The Houston Astros carved out a 2-1 victory in 10 innings over the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday on the backs of five relievers after starter Ronel Blanco was ejected.

The short-term implications of the heavy relief workload for the Astros are clear. Houston secured at least a split of this crucial four-game series with the Athletics, which is set to continue on Wednesday, but did so by digging deep into its bullpen for a second consecutive game.

Right-handers Tayler Scott, Rafael Montero, Bryan Abreu and Ryan Pressly worked the first two games of the series. Closer Josh Hader logged two innings on Tuesday while earning the win. That sets the stage for the Astros to be shorthanded for at least the remainder of this series.
