Open Thread: Game 113 - A's vs. Rangers

The A's and Shane Komine with no record and a 1.50 ERA take on the Rangers and A's killer Kevin Millwood who is 10-7 record and a 4.63 ERA.

Millwood has started three games against the A's this year and has a 4.77 ERA in those three games. The A's have hit .290 off the Rangers big free agent signing.

The A's lineup looks like this tonight:

Kendall
Kielty
Bradley
Thomas
Chavez
Swisher
Payton
Ellis
Scutaro

Kotsay continues to nurse that aching back, but thankfully Frank Thomas is feeling well enough to swing the bat tonight.

Komine makes his second big league start. His last one was AN Day 3 and he had a victory snatched away by a bullpen meltdown that ultimately wound up in a very dramatic win for the A's.

The potent lineup that will try to whack Komine looks like this:

Matthews
Young
Lee
Teixeira
Blalock
DeRosa
Stairs
Kinsler
Laird

Komine mixed speeds well his last outing and hopefully he can do the same thing tonight since he doesn't exactly have overpowering stuff.

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