At 3:35 pm, our selection is on the Oakland Athletics over the Houston Astros.  The Astros were not only the last American League Team to make it into the post-season (they locked down their spot with just two days to go in the regular season).  They were also the only AL club to make it in with a losing record.  So, naturally, people were thinking "last in, first out," and you can hardly blame them.  But here we are, two games into the second round, and Houston has yet to lose a game (4-0).  And the 'Stros are just one win away from a most unlikely appearance in the LCS.  The A's haven't had much of an answer through two games but you know they will pull out all the stops this afternoon.  So, it's fitting that they'll send their top rookie pitcher to the mound in LH Jesus Luzardo.  The just-turned-23-year-old had a forgettable start in the Wild Card series against the White Sox, so he's looking for a little redemption this afternoon in a must-win situation.  Luzardo is unbeaten in six daytime games (three starts) going 2-0 with a 3.46 ERA in 26 innings.  Take the A's.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
