Greinke hopes to snap Astros out of funk vs. A's

Newcomer Zack Greinke hopes to continue a personal winning streak while ending his team's skid when the right-hander leads the visiting Houston Astros up against the Oakland Athletics in the finale of a four-game series on Sunday afternoon.

The A's have used a variety of means to sweep the first three games of the series, riding five home runs to a 7-6 victory on Thursday night, extra-inning small-ball to pull out a 3-2 win Friday, and station-to-station hitting to grind out an 8-4 triumph on Saturday.

With four straight wins, coupled with Houston's five consecutive losses, the second-place A's (71-52) have closed within 6 1/2 games of the first-place Astros (78-46) in the American League West.
