07/28 22:34 CDT Carter leads Astros homer-happy win over Athletics Carter leads Astros homer-happy win over Athletics HOUSTON (AP) --- Chris Carter, Jason Castro, Marc Krauss and Matt Dominguez each hit a home run as the Houston Astros snapped a five-game skid with a 7-3 win over the Oakland Athletics on Monday night. Carter hit a monstrous three-run shot to center field in the third to give the Astros a lead, and Castro and Krauss went back-to-back in the sixth, with Castro's homer a two-run shot. Krauss' homer found the upper deck in right field and chased A's starter Jesse Chavez (8-7). Two batters later, Dominguez sent a drive onto the railroad tracks in left field off reliever Dan Otero. The last time Houston hit three home runs in an inning was June 5, 2013, against Baltimore. Houston starter Brett Oberholtzer (3-7) won for the first time since May 30, giving up three runs on eight hits with two strikeouts in 6 2-3 innings. Chavez allowed six runs and five hits with five strikeouts in 5 1-3 innings. The three home runs allowed were a career high. Chavez had allowed three home runs in his last 11 starts combined. Stephen Vogt had two hits, including a solo home run in the third into the upper deck in right to give the A's a 2-0 lead. Jed Lowrie and Josh Donaldson each added two hits for Oakland. Derek Norris gave the A's a 1-0 lead in the second with an RBI single, and Yoenis Cespedes tied it at 3 with a sacrifice fly in the fifth. ON DECK Athletics: Right-hander Jeff Samardzija, who is 2-1 with a 2.70 ERA in four starts since being acquired July 5 from the Cubs, will start Tuesday against the Astros in the second game of the three-game series. Astros: Right-hander Scott Feldman, who is 4-8 with a 4.60 ERA, will try to bounce back Tuesday after one of his worst starts of the season, giving up six runs in 5 1-3 innings in a 13-1 loss at Oakland Thursday. TRAINER'S ROOM Athletics: Outfielder Craig Gentry was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday with a broken right hand, and the A's promoted OF Billy Burns from Double-A Midland. Gentry was injured Sunday at Texas after being hit by a pitch. Astros: Right-hander Josh Zeid, who is on the disabled list with swelling near the left big toe, is going to see a specialist Tuesday and hopes to avoid surgery.
