Oakland rebounded from a 1-6 slide in a big way, kicking off an eight-game homestand with four straight wins against the New York Yankees - including three one-run decisions.Khris Davis had his nine-game hitting streak halted during the series but ended a 12-game power drought with a two-run homer during a four-run third inning in Sunday's 4-3 victory. Houston takes to the road for seven contests after a disappointing homestand during which it lost two of three to the Los Angeles Angels, Texas and Boston. The Astros dropped a 6-5 decision to the Red Sox on Sunday despite a 14-hit attack that saw five of the first six hitters in the lineup register two apiece. One of those hitters was Jose Altuve, who has gone 9-for-13 during his four-game hitting streak.TV: 10:05 p.m. ET, ROOT Southwest (Houston), NBCSN California (Oakland)PITCHING MATCHUP: Astros RH Brad Peacock (3-1, 3.00 ERA) vs. Athletics RH Daniel Gossett (0-1, 16.20)Peacock will be making his sixth start after beginning the season with 12 relief appearances but has made it past the fifth inning just once.
