Maybe the A's are on to something. Despite being in the AL West cellar, Bob Melvin's spunky bunch finished off a sweep of the Astros Sunday.
The A's won 10-2 Sunday to wrap up the four-game sweep. Oakland outscored Houston 41-15 during the four-game series.
Rookie Matt Chapman got the scoring started in the bottom of the fifth inning with a solo homer, his 12th long ball of the season. Ryon Healy added his 24th home run of the year in the seventh.
Starter Kendall Graveman went six innings. He allowed five hits, one earned run and two walks. He struck out three.
