A's and Tigers tangle as the A's look to win a series from the AL Central Champ Detroit Tigers. Guillermo Moscoso and his strange numbers will take the hill against Justin Verlander one of the favorites for the American League Cy Young Award this year.
The A's lineup is a bit different. Scott Sizemore hits second against one of the best right-handed pitchers in baseball - not sure sure I like that move, Chris Carter gets the start at DH and hits sixth, while the left-handed Allen hits seventh (a swap of those two would seem appriorate). Eric Sogard gets the start at shortstop - it really is looking more and more like Rosales will be non-tendered with Sogard winning that backup infield role.
Last Sunday game of the year at the Coliseum - another season winds to its inevitable end.
