Montas reaches 200 Ks, A's pound first-place Astros 14-2

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Frankie Montas pitched two-hit ball over seven innings and became the first Athletics pitcher in 20 years to reach 200 strikeouts in a season, helping Oakland pound the Houston Astros 14-2 on Friday night to support its slim playoff hopes.

Starling Marte had four hits and four RBIs as the A's snapped a four-game skid. Oakland began the day four games behind the Yankees for the second AL wild card, with the Mariners and Blue Jays also in front of the A's.

Matt Olson drove in four for Oakland. Chad Pinder added a pinch-hit grand slam in the seventh inning.
