    A's vs. Astros lineups: Brett Anderson seeks career-high season win

    After exchanging massive blowouts, the A's and Astros will take the field for game three of their four-game series Wednesday night in Houston.

    The Astros routed Oakland 15-0 in the first game of the series, but the A's bounced back with a dominant 21-7 win on Tuesday. Houston still leads the season series 11-6.

    Ramón Laureano returns to the A's lineup, but not in his usual center field. He will instead be in right and bat seventh. Mark Canha will handle center and hit cleanup.

    Sean Murphy will be behind the plate again after launching two home runs in Tuesday's win. He will bat ninth.

    Brett Anderson will take the hill for Oakland, seeking his career-high 12th win of the season. Anderson, 31, is 11-9 with a 4.08 ERA in 28 starts this year. However, the left-hander is just 1-5 with a 6.68 ERA in seven career outings against the Astros.

    Houston will counter with right-hander José Urquidy. The 24-year-old rookie is 1-1 with a 5.33 ERA in six games this season, including five starts. This will be his first appearance against the A's.

    Here are the full lineups for the A's-Angels game, which will be broadcast on NBC Sports California and the MyTeams app. Coverage begins at 4:30 p.m. PT, with first pitch at 5:10.
