Athletics-Astros Preview

(AP) -- The Oakland Athletics have captured all three games when they have faced Houston Astros starter Brad Peacock this year.

What's probably of more concern to them in the finale of this three-game series is whether they can contain slugger Chris Carter.

Carter has homered in four of his last five games against Oakland but has little experience versus Drew Pomeranz, who starts for the first time in over two months Wednesday night in Houston.
