Open Thread: Game 5 - Kansas City Royals @ Oakland Athletics

Really, if he can go more than 4, then he'll be fine.

Good Evening Sports fans, and welcome to another edition of A's Baseball. For those of you who are not drunk already, the A's are taking on the Kansas City Royals to see who's prospects are closest to the Majors and which team is farthest from first place.

Tonight, Tommy Milone takes on Louis Mendoza (why so many make the Majors with that last name, I don't know why...) in his A's Debut, and we can see if he can outshine his counterpart this season. Gio, BTW, in his Nationals Debut, pitched 3.2 Innings and gave up 4 runs, while walking 3, so the bar just yet has not been held too high.

In transaction news, the A's will be without Brandon Allen, who was DFA'd earlier today, but will be with Daric Barton, who is in the lineup tonight, hopefully with all body parts and staples in tact.

Lineups are posted, lets get to the ballgame.
