The Houston Astros continue to take it to the division rival Oakland Athletics in a battle for supremacy in the AL West.

One day after taking out Oakland by double-digit runs, Astros star Yuli Gurriel got Houston off on the right foot.

It included this inside-the-park two-run blast in the second inning to give Houston a 2-0 lead.

For as good as Ramón Laureano has been in center for the A’s this season, we’re not exactly too sure what he was doing here.

As you can hear, Astros announcers called it a homer right after the ball got past Laureano.

For his part, Gurriel now has 15 homers and 33 RBI over his past 25 games. Can you say hot?
