The A's and Danny Haren with a 1-5 record and a 5.21 ERA go against Randy Johnson with a 3-2 record and a 3.68 ERA.
Down they fall, where they'll stop, nobody knows. The A's are still sinking deeper in their hole and facing The Big Unit doesn't help. The A's did make some lineup changes for the game, including sitting Eric Chavez on the bench because even though Unit is getting on in years, he can still be filthy.
Here is the A's lineup:
You can understand why Watson would be on the bench with the Unit on the mound. Second day called up facing him? Yikes.
The Yankees counter with this group:
Haren's last two outings have only lasted 3 2/3's innings, giving up 13 runs in that time span. Granted, five were unearned, but it doesn't bode well against the Yankees suddenly red-hot lineup.
Haren needs to get his groove back.
LET'S GO A'S!!!!!!
