Game Thread #94: Oakland Athletics vs. Boston Red Sox

Thearon W. Henderson

After a tough loss last night, the A's try to rebound to tie the series tonight, win one on a packed Saturday night at home, and go into the All-Star Break on a high note. A.J. Griffin will try to shut down the explosive Boston offense and the A's offense will counter with Jon Lester.

Welcome back to Oakland for what could only be called a playoff preview weekend between the league-leading Boston Red Sox and the AL West leading Oakland Athletics. The A's, who lost a tough game last night, will try to rebound and tie the series behind A.J. Griffin.

We have a Grant Green sighting in the lineup batting in the ninth spot. Donaldson will be in the 3-spot, and Cespedes will try his hand at clean-up. Let's do this!

Here are your lineups:

LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
