I'm guessing "strike".
Tommy Milone makes his third start, up against LDB (left-handed something-or-other-bag) C.J. Wilson. The A's try to win the last three games of the series and return to .500.
Coco Crisp is out for the second day in a row with the flu, likely the same one that sent Milone back to the hotel on Monday. A product of USC, Milone will be pitching in front of 50-60 family and friends tonight.
