The A's and Joe Kennedy with a 7-9 record and a 6.02 ERA take on the Mariners and Joel Pineiro with a 5-9 record and a 5.59 ERA.
The A's welcome back Mark Kotsay and give Kendall a night off. We'll see if it sparks the offense or not. The lineup is shaken up a bit, thanks to all the missing players.
It looks like this:
I'm not sure I like Payton hitting third, but the A's don't have many other options at this point.
The Mariners counter with this lineup:
We just all lost power in North Sacramento. Let's hope that isn't a foreshadowing of the A's offense tonight.
LET'S GO A'S!!!!!!!
