The slow start to 2021 is officially over.
Sure, the Oakland A’s aren’t done climbing all the way out the hole they dug in the standings, still holding a 3-7 record and a spot in the AL West cellar. But after dropping their first six contests, they’ve now won three of the next four, all against top-notch opponents.
The latest triumph was a comfortable 7-3 win over the Houston Astros, earning the A’s their first series win of the year in the three-game slate, and on the road no less. That comes just days after Houston swept the green-and-gold in four dates at the Coliseum, and Oakland looked every bit as dominant as their rivals had in their first matchup.
