Astros, A's clear benches, empty seats; Oak wins 9th in row

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The Oakland Athletics and Houston Astros apparently were tired of playing nice.

So following two quiet games at the Coliseum, true feelings seemed to come out and tempers flared Sunday, months after Houston's sign-stealing scandal was brought to light by Oakland pitcher Mike Fiers.

Things got so angry the benches cleared - and the stands emptied, too, during Oakland's 7-2 victory over the AL West rival Astros.
