Open Thread: Game 34 - A's at Toronto

New, 536 comments

The A's and Los Kirk with a 1-0 record and a 4.26 ERA take on former A Ted Lilly with a 3-2 record and a 3.18 ERA.

The A's look to take the series from the Jays, and Macha wisely made the choice to only use Blanton and Roney yesterday, saving the pen for today. Course, it's debatable which pitchers are actually available out of the pen with reports that Kennedy is now hurt.

The A's lineup looks like this:

Ellis
Swisher
Crosby
Thomas
Kielty
Payton
Johnson
Melhuse
Scutaro

Looks like Jeremy Brown's time with the A's will not provide him with his first opportunity. Then again, with Melhuse hitting two home runs in his first two games filling in for Kendall, you can't blame the A's for keeping him in there.

One thing to note, Dan Johnson is 4-4 with two walks and a double. And for those of you wondering why Kielty would ever be hitting behind Big Hurt, he's 6-15 off Lilly with a home run and a double.

The Jays counter with this lineup:

Johnson
Catalanotto
Rios
Glaus
Overbay
Hillenbrand
Zaun
Adams
Hill

LET'S GO OAK-LAND!!!!!!!
