The middle game of the A's-O's series features lefty Adam Loewen against righty Dan Haren. The A's hope Haren gives up 9 ER instead of striking out 12, because they want Danny to win the game. You may remember Loewen from his start against the A's at Baltimore, when he gave up just 1 hit in 5 innings, but walked 6. Look for the A's to take a lot of pitches early to see if Loewen can throw enough strikes.
