HOUSTON (AP) - Josh Donaldson hit a pair of two-run homers to help the Oakland Athletics cruise to a 10-1 win over the Houston Astros last night. It was the first career multihomer game for Donaldson. He connected in the first inning and pushed the lead to 10-1 with a second shot in the seventh. Scott Kazmir is off to a 3-0 start for the first time in his career.
HOUSTON (AP) - Houston reliever Paul Clemens was ejected in the seventh inning of yesterday's game for hitting Oakland's Jed Lowrie with a pitch. The situation seems to have stemmed from Houston's series with Oakland last week when it appeared that Clemens tried to hit Lowrie with a pitch in the third inning. Lowrie had attempted a bunt in the first inning when the A's had a seven-run lead.
