Astros-Athletics Preview

(AP) -- While Jose Altuve isn't showing signs of slowing down during his remarkable hitting streak, the Oakland Athletics aren't getting much from their short-handed offense during their losing streak.

Altuve looks to hit safely in a 29th consecutive game in this series as the Houston Astros go for the sweep Sunday against the A's, who are three games under .500 for the first time since July 2012.

Altuve, who hit a major league-best .341 in 2014, went 2 for 5 with his second home run and three RBIs in Saturday's 9-3 win that moved Houston (10-7) to a 6-1 since dropping six of its first 10.
