Game Thread for the 42nd Game: A's @ Giants

Loading Scores

Bartolo Colon faces off against Tim Lincecum today at AT&T Park as the A's look to end an eleven game skid in San Francisco. Lincecum has struggled this year with a 5.77 ERA but his strong peripherals (9.9 K/9, 4.5 BB/9 and 0.4 HR/9) leave his FIP (2.95) a smidgen above his career mark (2.93). The A's throw Colon out there, who has been merely OK with the A's but has the interesting distinction of very similar ERA, FIP and xFIPs at 4.13, 4.13 and 4.14 respectively.

A's lineup isn't that different from what we have seen as of late, the big news for the A's today being that Brandon McCarthy is being placed on the disabled list with a shoulder strain. The A's have called up Jim Miller in his stead.

Let's win one for Brandon!
