Bay Bridge Series Game Thread 3/28

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

Last night, both Bob Melvin and Bruce Bochy played how they would ordinarily play a national league game, there were double switches and everything! The A's did this on offense:

And this on defense:

And won the game 4-0, thereby clinching the spring series against the Giants four games to one. Tonight the A's roll out Jesse Chavez against Tim "worse than Sonny Gray-stache" Lincecum. They will be strictly limited to the mound, with the designated hitter in effect tonight, so no double switches unless we run out of guys that can play third base or catcher or something.

Weather should be good tonight, but rain threatens tomorrow's finale at the Coliseum (as well as Monday night's home opener).

For the visiting Oakland Athletics, DarBar gets the start at first base, with Brandon Moss sitting tonight. John Jaso goes behind the plate, Nick Punto returns from his little hammy trouble, and Callaspo mans the hot corner:
