Oakland is living right.
The team completed its first sweep of the season by beating the Astros 9-3, the A's fifth win in a row, and better still, they left town with no broken bones.
Gold Glove right fielder Josh Reddick, the A's top home run hitter in 2012, slammed hard into the wall down the right-field line in the fifth inning and left the game, holding his right arm awkwardly.
Also, starter Brett Anderson took two balls off his bare left hand, one that left his thumb looking "gnarly," as Anderson said.
Both were taken to St. Joseph Medical Center for X-rays, and the results were negative. Reddick's injury was described as a right wrist sprain and Anderson's as a left thumb contusion.
Manager Bob Melvin isn't sure of a timetable for Reddick's return, and though Reddick said he planned to ice the wrist Sunday and all day Monday, it's hard to envision him playing Tuesday in Anaheim.
Reddick usually bounces back up even after spectacular crashes, and when he stayed down a few minutes and came up cradling his arm, there were fears he'd fractured something.
"I was very concerned," Melvin said. "It takes a lot to get him out of the game. I feel much better about it now."
"I was scared," Reddick said. "I was worried something was seriously wrong, I lost feeling in the area."
Reddick had an agonizing wait to find out his X-ray results until he got back to the stadium and a doctor looked at the disk. "Huge sign of relief," he said. "Obviously, I don't want to lose any time."
