Astros, A's continue series, postseason push

Two teams concerned about key injuries will go head-to-head again Saturday afternoon in a game with American League West-clinching and AL wild-card-chasing significance when the Houston Astros visit the Oakland Athletics.

The first-place Astros (91-63) saw their magic number to clinch the AL West stay at three Friday when they were drubbed 14-2 by the third-place A's (83-71) while the second-place Seattle Mariners (85-69) were winning on the road against the Los Angeles Angels.

Houston can clinch no worse than a title for the West crown with a win Saturday coupled with a Seattle loss to the Angels. An Astros win also would formally eliminate Oakland from contention in the West.
