Open Game Thread: Game 75 - A's at Cleveland

New, 377 comments

The A's and Chad Gaudin with his 6-2 record and 3.05 ERA take on the Tribe and Vallejo's own C.C. Sabathia with a 10-2 record and a 3.34 ERA.

The A's try and get back on track after getting swept out of New York by the Mets. It won't be easy as the A's have had a tough time the last few years in Cleveland and Sabathia is one of the game's elite pitchers.

The A's send out this lineup to try and take down the Indians:

Stewart
Scutaro
Swisher
Chavez
Cust
Crosby
Johnson
Kotsay
Kendall

Ah, back to the AL and the good old DH rule. I swear to Bill King I wish we could just do away with Interleague. Maybe that's just me.

Any way, here is the Indians lineup:

Sizemore
Blake
Martinez
Hafner
Peralta
Garko
Nixon
Gutierrez
Barfield

Gaudin is a huge concern as his ERA is over five in June. Perhaps he's tired after not starting for more than a year? Whatever it is, the A's need him to get his magic back as soon as humanly possible.

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