And making the situation even more difficult, even the Houston Astros did not hesitate to mock the Athletics and their fans.

Talking about the game, it was another big series loss for the Athletics. And after winning the series, the Astros pointed toward their win, and the near-empty stadium and took a dig at the A’s in a brutal social media move.
