Open Thread: Game 82 - A's at Toronto

New, 212 comments

The A's and Danny Haren with a 7-7 record and a 3.85 take on the Blue Jays and Josh Towers with a 6-7 record and a 4.23 ERA.

The A's hottest pitcher in terms of victories takes the hill with an impressive bunch of stats backing him up...from the game preview:

In Haren's last seven starts, the A's are unbeaten, with the 24-year-old righty getting the decision in six of those games. Over his last three starts, Haren has allowed 21 runners on base (19 hits, two walks) while fanning 14 over 23 innings.

That's a pretty darned impressive WHIP right there, folks.

The A's send out this lineup against Towers:

Kendall
Kotsay
Crosby
Chavez
Hatteberg
Kielty
Johnson
Swisher
Scutaro

The Blue Jays counter with this group:

Adams
Catalanotto
Wells
Hillenbrand
Hill
Zaun
Hinske
Johnson
Hudson

The A's have that magic number staring them in the face if they can take this game. It'd be like starting the season brand new with 80 games left.

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