There are some days where it feels like the season has being going on forever, and then there are days when I can't believe the A's have played 124 games already. We're heading into the final stretch with the A's on a pitching hot-streak: the A's have racked up sixteen straight starts of six innings or more with three earned runs or fewer allowed.
The pitchers have a chance to continue the streak tonight with Trevor Cahill on the mound; he's sporting a 1.13 ERA in August, throwing at least seven innings each outing.
The A's will try to beat Mitch Talbot tonight to get back on the winning side of .500. It's the usual offensive crew scheduled to start tonight; despite Larish's performance last night, he finds himself out of the lineup.
