The injury happened on the fifth pitch of the game where Jesse Hahn came high and in and in a defensive motion Springer pulled back and got hit on his left wrist.
Astros: 2B Jose Altuve didn't play on Thursday, manager A.J. Hinch said he wanted to give the reigning AL batting champion a day off. The ball did appear to glance off of Springer's hand after hitting his shoulder and he certainly landed awkwardly. He is day to day with a contusion and hopes to play Friday at Seattle. Behind two three-run homers, Houston scored eight in the second alone. "We were very, very cautious with pulling him out". You get a little bit too careful and you get too greedy, or you throw the ball right down the middle and end up getting hit around a little bit. It all worked out with Jake hitting a homer and George being OK.
The Astros defeated the A's at Oakland Coliseum for the 10th straight time and have won 15 of the past 16 games overall against Oakland.
The Astros improved to a major league-best 50-24. They've won 12 of their last 14 road games. Evan Gattis had three RBIs.
Rangers 11, Blue Jays 4: Carlos Gomez homered twice to drive in five runs and Texas beat Toronto for a split of the four-game series.
"They were in pretty high spirits", Reddick said, looking back to the start of the series.
"It was just one of those things I felt coming for a little while, but obviously it's never easy". The Indians won three of four from the Orioles to complete a 7-1 road trip that began with a four-game sweep of Minnesota. "Anytime you can sweep somebody it's going to be fun".
The Astros became the first team in the majors to reach the 400-run mark. Young pitched for the A's during their run of three straight American League championships from 1988-1990, winning a World Series ring in 1989.
They scored 10 runs in the first two innings, including an 8-spot in the second, en route to a 12-9 victory. Kris Bryant had a three-run homer, Willson Contreras added a two-run shot and Ian Happ also had four hits and drove in a pair.
The Bill Cosby Jury Is Still Stuck - Deliberations Could Continue Through Saturday
Dozens of women have come forward to say he drugged and assaulted them, but this was the only case to result in criminal charges. The jury in the Bill Cosby sexual assault trial is still trying to break their deadlock and reach a decision in the case.
One of the most popular A's since his arrival, Vogt's first career hit ended up being a home run. Hahn had gone 2-0 with a 2.81 ERA in his three previous starts.
"Yeah I think maybe that affected (me)", Hahn said. "I started spiking a lot, yanking stuff, and it just wasn't good". Maxwell went 3 for 4, which included an RBI double.
And although it wasn't a total surprise, it was still a shock to fans and media that veteran catcher Stephen Vogt was designated for assignment on Thursday morning just hours before the first pitch. The Astros gave Paulino a 10-0 lead after two innings.
"We were being selective", Marisnick said.
But the A's came alive for a six-run rally in the eighth to close to within 12-9 and make the Astros sweat it.
DENVER - Paul Goldschmidt and Chris Owings hit three-run homers, Zack Godley threw well into the eighth inning, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Colorado Rockies 10-3 on Thursday. Doctors are administering antibiotics intravenously after medications "plateaued", manager Bob Melvin said. "The velocity wasn't there, command wasn't there". I sent best wishes to him after I came out.
The other new arrival also shines: Matt Olson, also called up Thursday as Matt Chapman went on the 10-day disabled list, went 2-for-3 with two RBI. Hey, the A's get to meet "em again for three more games in Houston next week". I was, like, 'Nah, I can't do that.' If it's in the gap, I'm going two.
