Walking off the mound much earlier than any starting pitcher would want Sunday afternoon, Astros righthander Lucas Harrell threw his glove up in frustration as he reached the dugout. The glove landed in the Minute Maid Park stands, another souvenir Harrell hadn’t planned to provide. Harrell had regrettable command, and the Oakland Athletics capitalized. The A’s hit three home runs to complete a three-game sweep with a 9-3 victory over the Astros, who have lost five in a row.
