The A's and Barry Zito with a 1-4 record and a 5.54 ERA goes against Matt Clement with a 4-0 record and a 3.06 ERA.
The A's finally dumped the eight-game losing streak last night, but they face a stiff challenge in Clement, who has been nasty this year.
The A's lineup looks like this:
The Red Sox counter with a righty-heavy lineup against Z. Although that's interesting because against lefties, Z's BAA is .300 and OPS against is .842. Against righties, Z BAA is .252 and righties only have a .709 OPS against.
Let's get a streak going the other way, boys, please? LET'S GO A'S!!!
