Game Thread #69: Oakland Athletics vs. Seattle Mariners

After last night's marathon contest, the A's look to keep rolling in the wins, hopefully in nine innings, but we'll take wins wherever we can get them. Tommy Milone will match up against Joe Saunders in a game the A's hope to win, as they are facing very tough pitchers the rest of the weekend.


Well, yesterday's marathon win was not without more casualties. Josh Donaldson will sit this one out, a move that I don't think is that bad; he's started almost every game this year.

Here's the latest on his situation:

Also out of the lineup tonight is Coco Crisp, who had a day off yesterday until the A's decided to play two. Chris Young will be taking his place in the leadoff spot today.For Seattle, we will get our first look at the big prospect Mike Zunino, who will be catching tonight.

Milone looks to keep the A's rolling; tonight is the game we want, since the A's are matched up against Felix and Iwakuma this weekend.

Here are your lineups:
