OAKLAND (CBS / AP) — L.J. Hoes homered with one out in the top of the 12th, and the Houston Astros beat the Oakland Athletics 3-2 on Tuesday night for their first win in four tries at the Coliseum this year.

The Astros also earned their first three-game winning streak against the A’s in franchise history.

Hoes connected off Fernando Abad (2-4). The baseball-leading A’s (61-38) missed several chances to move a season-high 25 games over .500.

Pinch-hitter John Jaso hit a two-out single in the 11th and Jed Lowrie drew a walk from Jose Veras, who was replaced by Darin Downs (2-1).

Jose Altuve hit a one-out single in the 10th and tried to steal second. Initially called safe, A’s manager Bob Melvin challenged that second baseman Nick Punto tagged him in time. The call was overturned in 1 minute, 3 seconds.

That ended a franchise-record 28 straight steals by Altuve without being caught.
