HOUSTON -- For the first time in a long time, the Houston Astros turned up the music and celebrated a victory in their own clubhouse. Air Jordan 1 Chicago China . Dexter Fowler hit a tiebreaking RBI single in Houstons four-run eighth inning, and the Astros beat the Oakland Athletics 7-6 on Saturday night. It was Houstons first home win since a 7-4 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on April 6, ending a six-game losing streak at Minute Maid Park. The Astros have won three of their last 13 games overall. Fowler also had a solo homer as Houston snapped a three-game losing streak. Chris Carter connected for a two-run shot in the second. The game was tied at 3 when Fowler drove in Marwin Gonzalez with a base hit against Sean Doolittle (0-2). Jason Castro then singled in Jose Altuve, and Fowler and Castro eventually came home on groundouts. "It was just one of those nights, and thats whats frustrating because I looked at the film and dont have a lot of answers," Doolittle said. "I couldnt get anybody out." Doolittle entered the game having allowed just four runs in his previous 18 1-3 innings, dating to last season. "Every now and then, thats going to happen to everybody," Oakland manager Bob Melvin said. "But you dont expect that to happen to him." Brandon Moss hit a three-run homer in the Oakland ninth against Jerome Williams (1-1). Nick Punto then singled, but Coco Crisp bounced into a fielders choice and Raul Valdes struck out John Jaso and Jed Lowrie for his first save. Houston ended an eight-game losing streak against Oakland, dating to last season. The Astros also improved to 6-25 against the As overall. The series began with a couple of ugly losses when Houston reliever Paul Clemens was ejected Thursday night and manager Bo Porter was thrown out on Friday night for hit-by-pitch-related incidents. But Porter downplayed any extra satisfaction from the victory. "Theres nothing extra special about it," Porter said. "Its a team on our schedule, and our goal is to win every game on our schedule." Fowler went deep in the first and Carters two-run shot to left on an 0-1 pitch from Dan Straily gave the Astros a 3-2 lead in the second. Straily struck out seven in 6 1-3 innings. The right-hander allowed four hits and walked two. Straily has allowed at least one home run in each of his first five starts and has allowed seven home runs in 27 innings after allowing just 16 in 152 1-3 innings in 2013. "Eliminate the homers, and Ill be doing just fine," he said. Oakland got to Dallas Keuchel for two runs in the first. Lowrie singled in Crisp, and Derek Norris scored when cleanup hitter Josh Donaldson grounded into a double play. "I just felt lucky to get out of the first with just two runs, especially the way theyve been swinging the bat," Keuchel said. After scoring just seven runs in three games and being swept by the Rangers, the As have scored 28 runs against the Astros in the last three games. The Athletics trailed 3-2 until Crisp drove in Craig Gentry with a sacrifice fly against Williams in the seventh. Keuchel also went 6 1-3 innings for Houston. The lefty was charged with three runs and six hits, struck out six and walked two. NOTES: Oakland outfielder Yoenis Cespedes participated in batting practice and did light individual jogging to test a strained left hamstring. Cespedes left in the seventh inning of Oaklands 10-1 win over Houston on Thursday after legging out an infield single. Melvin said after Saturdays game that Cespedes was doubtful to play on Sunday. ... For just the second time in their last five games, the Astros did not commit an error. They entered the week ranked third in the majors with seven errors but committed eight on Thursday and Friday.

Not because it was right, but because referees werent allowed to determine it was wrong.SONOMA, Calif. -- Scott Dixon pulled in for his final pit stop with victory nearly in his grasp. When he left a few seconds later, two members of Will Powers crew were sprawled on the asphalt, a tire bouncing wildly in his wake. Although everybody involved had a strong opinion about what happened, Power knows one thing for certain: Hes leaving wine country with yet another trophy. Power won at Sonoma Raceway for the third time in four years Sunday, earning his first victory of the IndyCar season by taking advantage of Dixons penalty for making contact with Powers Team Penske pit crew. "I dont like to see the call that had to take place, but everybody saw it," Roger Penske said. "Its unfortunate, but thats the way racing is." Dixon led until he received a drive-through penalty with 15 laps to go for clipping a tire in the left hand of Powers tire holder when Dixons Honda left his pit directly behind Powers Chevrolet. The tire holder went flying into another crew member, and a third member was injured by an air gun or hose. Dixon thought Powers crew got in his way on purpose, leaving him angry and confused by IndyCars latest call against him. He finished 15th and lost a bit of ground on overall IndyCar leader Helio Castroneves, Powers Penske teammate, who finished seventh. Castroneves lead over Dixon grew from 31 to 39 points (479-440) with four races left in the IndyCar season. "Thats probably the most blatant thing Ive seen in a long time," Dixon said. "You watch most pit guys, they try to get out of the way of other people, so that was a bit of a (classless) move, to be honest. ... If thats the way they want to try and win, thats pretty bad." James Hinchcliffe of Oakville, Ont., finished eighth. Power scoffed at the notion any gamesmanship occurred in his first victory since early last season in Sao Paulo. Hes the only multiple IndyCar winner in Sonoma, where hes been dominant since he broke his back in a crash in 2009. "It reminds me of so many things thats happened to us in the last three years, so well take it," said Power, the 10th IndyCar winner this season. "I would be very surprised (if it was intentional). I havent seen it. Its not even worth commenting on. ... I really thought wed win before (now), but we just kept at it and worked hard and were fast all weekend." Dixon has been burned by IndyCars curious penalty decisions before. In Milwaukee last year, IndyCar acknowledged it looked at the wrong replay and madde an incorrect call when it ordered Dixon to serve a drive-through penalty for jumping a restart.

But race director Beaux Barfield stood behind his latest call against Dixon, saying the lines painted in the pit box dont correspond to the actual spaces afforded to the teams. IndyCar rules mandate penalties for drivers who make contact with pit crew members. "If we have somebody that uses less-than-great judgment when they leave their pit box, and we have an incident, then certainly weve got to make a statement by penalizing (that driver)," Barfield said. "The lines are a little bit confusing, because we dont go in and change the lines everywhere we go. "Theres a different angle, if you looked at, you can see the difference between the Target and the Verizon signs on the wall. With the No. 9 car (Dixon) leaving the pit lane, he clearly crosses right into the pit box into the No. 12 car (Power) space, and thats where the violation occurred." Dixons team saw it differently. "The guy turned his back and carried the tire into Dixons side," Chip Ganassi Racing team manager Mike Hull said. "He walked into us, so if that sets the precedent, in the next race, that means somebody can walk into us with a tire in their hand." All three crew members were fine to continue after a bit of ice. Dixons penalty dropped him 19 seconds behind Power into 21st, and Power carefully maintained his lead for a victory on the same course where he was seriously injured four years ago, forcing him to miss the rest of the season. "I think theyre way overplaying this thing, as far as Im concerned," Penske said. "Someone got hit, went up in the air. Obviously, the 9 car was too close to our crew, had an accident there. The outcome is obvious." Dixons brush with Powers crew highlighted an uncommonly eventful race in Sonoma, a twisty road course that usually doesnt allow much drama or passing. Penske got into a finger-pointing argument post-race with Marco Andretti, who made contact with Power late in the race. Third-place finisher Dario Franchitti was mad at Team Penske, feeling Power drove him off the track with no penalty. Justin Wilson was second. Castroneves finished behind Marco Andretti, Simon Pagenaud and Ryan Hunter-Reay. With strong wind and dust all over the course, the race featured a record seven cautions for various collisions and stalls. Sebastian Saavedra crashed heavily into a barrier with four laps to go.
