Astros, A's face quick turnaround after marathon

Left-hander Framber Valdez hopes to avenge one of the Houston Astros' most embarrassing moments of the 2019 season when he starts the second game of his team's American League West showdown series with the host Oakland Athletics on Saturday afternoon.

The A's will counter with right-hander Frankie Montas as they go for an eighth straight win and second in two days over the Astros in the three-game series.

Valdez (0-1, 2.53 ERA) and Montas (1-1, 2.25) have some big shoes to fill after the performances of starters Zack Greinke and Chris Bassitt in the series opener, a game the A's won 3-2 in 13 innings.
