Astros, nearing full health, out to seal series win over A's

Following a 47-game absence courtesy of a left hamstring strain, Astros utility man Aledmys Diaz made his triumphant return Monday at Minute Maid Park, slugging a three-run home run as Houston ran roughshod over the visiting Oakland Athletics in the opener of a pivotal three-game series.

The bigger picture for the Astros is what Diaz and his return represent.
