The A's and Barry Zito with a 9-8 record and a 3.59 ERA take on the Tigers and Nate Robertson with a 5-8 record and a 3.52 ERA.
The Tigers are a great hitting ballclub, especially with Ordonez in that lineup. At one point last night, I looked at Gameday and the top six hitters in the Tigers lineup were all above a .300 batting average. So Zito will have his hands full for sure.
I have to run out for a while, but I'm going to be listening to the game on the radio. I'll open a couple of extra threads for your use.
By the way, here is this week's series look-alike...Chris Shelton and Sloth from Goonies. Either that or Alfred E. Newman. I bet his teammates have already figured that one out.
LET'S GO A'S!!!!!!! Starting lineups:
M. Scutaro (LF)
