Open Thread: Game 77 - A's vs. Mariners

New, 190 comments

The A's and Smokin' Joe Blanton with a 4-6 record and a 4.70 ERA take on Ryan Franklin with a 3-9 record and a 4.63 ERA.

The A's look to win number six in a row and Blanton is back to smokin' with a 4-1 record in the month and a 2.02 ERA. Blanton has knocked nearly a run and a half off his ERA this month, but the better news is that he has gone 7.0, 6.0, 7.0, 7.2 and 8.0 innings in his June outings. That's obviously key to keeping the bullpen healthy.

The A's go with this lineup tonight:

Kotsay
Kendall
Chavez
Crosby
Johnson
Kielty
Ginter
Swisher
Scutaro

The Mariners counter with this lineup:

Suzuki
Winn
Beltre
Sexson
Ibanez
Boone
Reed
Morse
Olivo

LET'S GO A'S!!!!!!!
