HOUSTON (AP)  Slumping Brandon Moss hit a go-ahead single during a six-run rally in the ninth inning that sent the Oakland Athletics over the Houston Astros 7-4 Tuesday night.

Josh Reddick homered for the AL West-leading A's and Yoenis Cespedes had three hits, including two doubles.

Oakland trailed 4-1 in the ninth before pinch-hitter Alberto Callaspo had a two-run single off closer Chad Qualls (1-2).

After Houston couldn't turn a potential game-ending double play on John Jaso's grounder, Jed Lowrie walked and Cespedes tied it with a single.

Moss ended an 0-for-14 rut with an RBI single off Tony Sipp and then Josh Donaldson hit a two-run double off Jose Veras.

Evan Scribner (1-0) got the win and Sean Doolittle pitched the ninth for his 16th save.
