HOUSTON -- Rich Hill has returned to form after a stint on the disabled list, and it helped the Oakland Athletics to a much-needed win Thursday night.Yonder Alonso doubled and drove in two runs and Hill tied a season-high with 10 strikeouts in six solid innings to give the Athletics the 3-1 victory over the Houston Astros.The win snapped Oaklands two-game skid and was just its second victory in eight games.Weve seen quite a few of these games from him this year and to come back so effective after a long layoff and an injury is really impressive, manager Bob Melvin said. Weve gotten him back to 100 pitches or so and hes pitching in the same fashion he did before he left.Hill (9-3) allowed three hits and one run to extend his winning streak to six games in his second start since coming off the disabled list on Saturday. Hill was out for a little over a month with a strained left groin.He said he feels like hes back to where he was before his injury.Last outing went really well and I think this outing went well, he said. Every single time you get to put the uniform on at this level and go out there you have to take advantage of it.Manager A.J. Hinch said Hill kept Houston off-balance by mixing his pitches well.Early, it was all about the breaking ball. Late, it was all about his fastball, he said. So he changed his game plan a little bit back and forth and we had no way to solve it. He had a little bit of everything working. Regardless of our tendency to strike out, Rich Hill did a really good job.Ryan Madson pitched a perfect ninth for his 17th save.The Athletics trailed by one in the second when Danny Valencia and Khris Davis singled before Stephen Vogt drew a walk to load the bases with no outs. The Athletics tied it when Marcus Semien grounded into a double play that allowed Valencia to score.Alonso followed with his double to put Oakland up 2-1. He gave the Athletics an insurance run with an infield RBI single with two outs in the ninth.Houstons Doug Fister (8-6) yielded three hits and two runs in eight innings for his third straight loss after winning his previous seven decisions.George Springer extended his hitting streak to eight games with a leadoff triple that landed on Tals Hill in center field. Houston took a 1-0 lead when he scored on a groundout by Marwin Gonzalez.Luis Valbuena singled with one out in the second before Hill settled in, retiring the next 10. Houston didnt have another baserunner until a single by Jake Marisnick with two outs in the fifth inning. Hill struck out Jason Castro to end that inning before striking out three with two walks in the sixth to end his night.Josh Reddick reached on an error by shortstop Carlos Correa to start the ninth before Houston intentionally walked Vogt with two outs. Semien drew a walk after that to load the bases before Alonsos fly ball dropped in front of Correa to allow Reddick to score.COCOS APOLOGYCoco Crisp was ejected after tossing his bat in the direction of home plate umpire D.J. Reyburn after striking out for the third out of the fifth inning. After the game, Crisp apologized for his behavior and said he didnt mean for the bat to end up so close to Reyburn.I want to apologize for getting too close to him, Crisp said. That was pretty bad. Just also to let him know that I didnt want it to come out where it was going to hit him.Crisp went 0 for 3 to snap a 12-game hitting streak, which was the longest active streak in the majors.UP NEXTAthletics: Daniel Mengden (1-4, 3.48) will start for Oakland on Friday. The rookie, who has 31 strikeouts combined in his first five career starts, looks to bounce back after allowing seven hits and four runs in 5 1/3 innings of a 6-3 loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday.Astros: Collin McHugh (5-6, 4.50) is scheduled to start for Houston on Friday. McHugh is looking for his first win since May 30, after going 0-2 in his last six starts.Rickard Rakell Jersey . I cant pinpoint a date, but I do remember a player from my youth. Brian Downing was with the Chicago White Sox at a time when I listened to every game I possibly could on the radio. That particular season the late great Harry Caray was calling the White Sox games. Korbinian Holzer Ducks Jersey . The 27-year-old Scrivens will be joining his third NHL club since signing with the Toronto Maple Leafs as a free agent in 2010. The move also reunites with him with head coach Dallas Eakins from their time together with the American Hockey Leagues Toronto Marlies. http://www.authenticduckspro.com/John-gibson-ducks-jersey/ . The No. 1-ranked Nadal tweaked his back warming up for the Australian Open final, which he lost almost four weeks ago in a major upset against Stanislas Wawrinka. His first stop after the layoff is the clay in Rio as he tests the back and tries to stay healthy for the French Open in three months. Hampus Lindholm Ducks Jersey . Now, with Game 6 set for Fenway Park and an 8:07 p.m. ET first pitch, the Detroit Tigers face the unenviable task of having to beat the Boston Red Sox twice, on the road, to advance to the World Series. Ryan Kesler Ducks Jersey . The Dutchmans tenure got off to a poor start when referee Guido Winkmann awarded a penalty within two minutes for Niklas Starks clumsy challenge on Alexandru Maxim.Masters champion Danny Willett and Lee Westwood will represent England in the World Cup of Golf at Kingston Heath in Melbourne.As the highest-ranked English player to commit to the two-man team event from Nov. 23-27, Willett had the right to choose his partner and opted for the man who finished second behind him at Augusta in April.Scotland will be represented by Russell Knox and his former Jacksonville University teammate Duncan Stewart, the world No.392 who won his first tournament on the Challenge Tour earlier this year.Willett, who finished 37th in the Olympics in Rio on Sunday, said: Its always great to represent your country. You dont get the chance to do it too often so Im excited about playing the World Cup.I was at Royal Melbourne in 2013 and although I didnt play as well as I wouldve liked, it was a cracking course and Ive heard Kingston Heath is just as good.Its a different format this time so Im really looking forward to playing with Westy. Hes played in nine Ryder Cups and has unbelievable experience of foursomes and fourballs, so I couldnt have picked a better partner.Westwood, 43, who has surprisingly never played in the World Cup before, added: Over the past couple of years Danny hass shown what hes capable of and Ive got no doubt hes going to prove a great partner, so Im looking forward to pairing up with him.ddddddddddddIve always enjoyed team golf. Its an exciting format and it adds to the occasion when youre playing for your country, so hopefully we can bring the trophy home with us.Knox, who is a strong contender for a Ryder Cup wild card after winning the Travelers Championship earlier this month, said: I cant wait.Ive never been to Australia so it was super exciting to get the chance to go there. Ive heard the golf course is one of the best in the world so it will be fun. To represent Scotland is obviously a dream come true.The last World Cup in 2013 featured a team and individual competition, with world No.1 Jason Day winning the individual title and combining with Adam Scott to claim team victory as well.Day and Scott will again represent Australia in November, although the 2016 tournament reverts back to a 72-hole team event. Teams will play in foursomes on the first and third days of competition and in fourballs on the second and fourth. ' ' '
