OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Frankie Montas spent too much time pitching from behind in his first start against Houston nearly two weeks ago. Given another chance, Oakland's rookie right-hander flipped the script and maintained the upper hand to end the longest winning streak in the majors this season.

A quirky home run by Matt Chapman helped, too.

Montas pitched into the seventh inning to stop Houston's 10-game winning streak, Chapman homered for the third time in six games and the Athletics beat the Astros 2-1 on Wednesday night.
