Are you ready, Oakland?! Your red-hot Oakland Athletics, winners of their last 13 of 15, a season-high nine games over the .500 mark, a mere two games behind the Division lead, and the leaders of the first Wild Card, will attempt another sweep at the rockin' Coliseum on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.
As well as the A's have been playing, they will certainly have to earn this one. Chris Sale hasn't allowed a run in his last 16 2/3 innings. On the other side of the mound, Jarrod Parker has turned his whole season around, and is now one of the A's better starters.
Coco Crisp is back; leading off today's game for the A's lineup, which is obviously dominated by right-handed hitters. The only exception is Josh Reddick, who knocked in the winning run in Friday's contest, and walked in the winning run in yesterday's walk-off win. We'll keep him.
Here are your lineups for today's game:
LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
