Game Thread #60: A's at Brewers

Bash Hermanos? - Thearon W. Henderson

It's only Tuesday, but the A's are already looking to pick up a road series win at Miller Park in Milwaukee. Following Tommy Milone's two-hit performance (there was a quality start somewhere in there, too) Oakland sends A.J. Griffin to the mound, opposed by the Brew Crew's Kyle Lohse.

Coco Crisp is banging out hits at a pace of .300 even. Jed Lowrie is out-hitting his career batting average by a cool 57 points. Josh Reddick looks great in only four games since coming back from a nagging wrist injury. Tommy Milone, Jarrod Parker, and the rest of the A's staff are finally performing the way A's fans hoped they would from the get-go. Oh, and Josh Donaldson is having a breakout year, making himself statistically comparable to the likes of Evan Longoria and Manny Machado, and mentionable in the same sentence as Miguel Cabrera.

So is it surprising that the A's are 11 games over .500, have won 15 of their last 17, and are only 1.5 games out of first place in the AL West? Not really, no. But it's sure as hell fun!

Tonight, the A's try to whittle that Texas lead down further behind A.J. Griffin, who opposes Milwaukee's Kyle Lohse on the mound. If Griffin out-does Tommy Milone offensively tonight (Milone was 2-4 with an RBI single in the opener), I'm officially convinced the A's are going to win the world series.

It's the lefty version of the A's tonight against the right-hander Lohse - check out the lineups below. First pitch is at 5:10 PM Pacific.
