HOUSTON — There was only one word to describe Oakland's play through four innings on Monday night against the Houston Astros.

"Ugly," player after player and manager Bob Melvin said.

As ugly as the start was, the Athletics managed to put it behind them and rallied for a 4-3 win.

Josh Reddick put Oakland on top with a two-run homer in the eighth inning and the Athletics remained perfect this season against the Astros.

Chris Young hit a solo homer for the A's, who are 10-0 against their new AL West foes this season and 15-1 all-time. The Astros have lost six straight overall.
