Open Thread: Game 108 - A's vs. Tigers

Hey! The A's have a chance to win a series today!

Dallas Braden takes the mound in search of his first win since April 24th, facing off against Nate Robertson, who has also been struggling. Yay!

It's down to a battle of which starter can allow the fewest number of runs. Hopefully, the A's have shown up to hit today; I think the key to the game is 'run support'.
