The A's are more than likely riding on a high following a very successful homestand.
Starting pitchers went 6-0 with a 1.16 ERA and held batters to a .163 average.
On Friday, Frankie Montas will get starter honors for the A's as the team heads to Houston on their first official road trip of the season. They will face Collin McHugh and the Astros who currently sit at a 2-5 record, fourth place in the AL West.
But it appears the Astros tend to be a thorn in the A's sides -- at least that was the case last season.
The A's lost the season series against the Astros for the fourth consecutive season last year.
