HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY, EVERYONE! And welcome to holiday baseball! The A's, after their awesome--and much needed--win last night, will try to secure at least a series split with the Blue Jay in this afternoon's contest. It's beautiful here in Southern California, so I imagine it's gorgeous in the Bay Area as well, and what could be better than holiday baseball?
Tommy Milone will be facing off against Marcus Stroman, a very highly regarded Blue Jays prospect. You'll all be glad to know that Cespedes, Moss and Donaldson are slotted 3/4/5 in the lineup, and all three catchers are playing.
Here are your lineups:
|TORONTO BLUE JAYS||OAKLAND A'S|
|Jose Reyes - SS||Coco Crisp - CF|
|Melky Cabrera - LF||John Jaso - DH|
|Jose Bautista - DH||Yoenis Cespedes - LF|
|E. Encarnacion - 1B||Brandon Moss - 1B|
|Dioner Navarro - C||Josh Donaldson - 3B|
|Brad Glenn - RF||Stephen Vogt - RF|
|Steve Tolleson - 3B||Derek Norris - C|
|D. Mastroianni - CF||Jed Lowrie - SS|
|M. Kawasaki - 2B||Nick Punto - 2B|
LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
