Open Thread: Game 119 - A's vs. Rays

The A's try for the elusive two game winning streak tonight as Justin Duchscherer takes the mound against the Rays' Andy Sonnanstine. The A's won a close game last night; as their light-hitting offense was supplemented by some pretty incredible bullpen work, capped by our own Ziggy's second save of the season.

In case you missed the press release today:

The Oakland A's today placed outfielder Ryan Sweeney on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right thumb and recalled infielder/outfielder Eric Patterson from Triple-A Sacramento.

It would be nice to see Duke turn it around from his last few starts and finish the season strong.
