HOUSTON (AP) After struggling on defense, Oakland's Ramon Laureano was determined to atone for his mistakes when he came up to the plate with the game tied in the 11th inning against the Houston Astros.
"I just keep moving forward ... I just think about that I'm going to get in the most important situation in the game," he said. "That's how I always think and just move forward and help the team win in any way that I can."
Laureano was able to do that on Tuesday when Matt Olson hit a three-run home run in the ninth inning before he added a ground-rule RBI double with one out in the 11th to give the A's a 4-3 victory.
