Tonight left-hander Tommy Milone is set to take on right-hander Jerome Williams in the first game of a three-game series against the Angels. Tommy Milone will try to continue his dominance at home, where he has maintained a 3 - 0 record with a .39 ERA. Those three games have all been against the Royals, White Sox, and Tigers, who are 10th, 16th, and 11th in MLB in runs scored.
The Angels offense has started to heat up with Mike Trout, Mark Trumbo, and Albert Pujols have all started to contribute consistently. Tommy Milone is going to have to cool down these three if he wants to continue his dominance at home.
Although the A's have lost 7 of their last 12 games, they are still playing .500 ball, with a 21 - 21 record. Hopefully the A's will able to support Tommy Milone and score a couple of runs en route to get back above .500!
Here are the lineups:
Looks like Coco Crisp is back in the lineup. Let's Go A's!
