Well, batten down the hatches; a storm is coming! In the wake of Hurricane Irene, which is sweeping towards the East Coast this weekend, the A's and Red Sox will try to play 3 games in a little over 24 hours, hoping to save the A's a return trip. Tonight will be the single game; and a doubleheader has been scheduled for tomorrow.
Gio Gonzalez will try to stop Tim Wakefield from earning his 200th career win. This should be a quick game, you know, with the knuckleball, and all.
Your lineups for this afternoon's contest:
LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
