Today the A's take on the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim to start a 7 game road trip featuring a 2 game series against the Angels and Rangers, and a 3 game series at At&t Park against the Giants.

Tyson Ross (7.71 ERA) is set to make his 6th start of the season and he will be up against fromer A's pitcher Dan Haren (4.19 ERA). Tyson Ross has had success against the Angels throughout his short career with a 2.61 ERA and 11 strikeouts to 2 walks over 19.2 innings pitched.

Dating back to the first game of the Red Sox series, the A's have scored 60 runs in their last 12 games, so that averages out to a whole 5 runs per game! Of course that has been with a healthy lineup, which has now been plagued by some minor injuries to Yoenis Cespedes, Jemile Weeks, Kila Ka'aihue, and Brandon Inge. Fortunately, Jemile Weeks will be in the starting lineup today as he had a minor ankle sprain during Saturdays' Tigers game.
