LATE THURSDAY NIGHT GAME RECAPS
• HOUSTON 5, OAKLAND 4 (10): Jed Lowrie hit an RBI double off Edward Mujica with two outs in the 10th to make up for his costly miscue, and the visiting Astros beat the A's. Carlos Correa launched a go-ahead homer in a three-run eighth that gave the Astros a 4-2 lead. But the AL West leaders had to rally again after the A's scored two unearned runs off closer Luke Gregerson in the ninth.
• CHICAGO 5, SAN FRANCISCO 4: Rookie bopper Kyle Schwarber homered in his second consecutive game and the host Cubs beat the Giants. The Cubs, playing meaningful baseball in August for the first time in years, won for the seventh time in eight games.
