Good evening and Happy Friday Game Thread! This is baseballgirl, coming at you from Las Vegas; the Aria Sportsbook to be exact, so I hope no one minds that I'm running a game here. This is a new start to the A's, after an absolutely devastating week; one in which we saw the loss of Brandon McCarthy for the season, and a three-game sweep by the Angels to put them back in contention. The A's don't have it any easier; they face King Felix Hernandez tonight. Here's to hoping they can put a couple of runs across the plate while A.J. Griffin holds the Mariners hitters at bay. We're looking at a Carter-less lineup again in favor of Brandon Moss.
Here we go!
LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
