Jonathan Villar hits third homer
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Astros shortstop Jonathan Villar got the scoring started Saturday, and put together the team's loan multi-hit performance in a 4-3 loss to the Athletics.

Villar was 2 for 3 at the bottom of the order, including a solo home run in the third inning to gain an early lead. He scored twice, as well, while raising his batting average to .212.

 Villar has been un unexpected source of power for the Astros, launching three home runs in 18 games, after finished the 2013 season with just one in 58 games. He is still hitting just .212/.293/.442 with three home runs and six RBI in 52 at-bats.

Chad Qualls falls apart in blown save
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Astros reliever Chad Qualls went for his second save of the season Saturday, but couldn't close the deal in a 4-3 loss to the Athletics.

Qualls recorded just a single out in his save attempt, as the A's jumped all over him in the ninth. He allowed a leadoff home run and then put the next two batters on base via a walk and a hit. He recorded his first out, but then the A's finished the game with consecutive singles to bring across the winning runs.

Qualls now has a 9.00 ERA and 2.80 WHIP in six appearances, spanning five innings of work.

Bullpen costs Brett Oberholtzer first win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Astros starting pitcher Brett Oberholtzer tossed the ball well enough to win Saturday against the A's, but the bullpen cost him in a 4-3 loss.

Oberholtzer held the A's to just one run in five-plus innings of work, in the third inning. He scattered eight hits and two walks in 5 2/3 innings, while striking out three batters and throwing 63 of 94 pitches for strikes.

Oberholtzer was on pace for his first win of the season, before closer Chad Qualls blew the save with a 3-1 lead. Oberholtzer remains 0-3 with a 3.04 ERA after four starts. He will go for his first win in his next start, Thursday against the A's again.
