Oakland goes for a series split in Texas.

Brian Kersey

Good morning Athletics Nation! Welcome to the AM edition of Oakland A's baseball. The A's and Rangers have alternated wins in the first three games of this series, so let's hope that the trend continues for Game 4 so that the green and gold can salvage a split.

Today's contest features a pitching match-up of A.J. Griffin vs right-hander Josh Lindblom. Griffin has run hot and cold this season, but his biggest weakness has been home runs. Doesn't sound like something which should bother him in Texas...

Lindblom has made three starts this year, and one of them was a loss to Oakland on May 20. In that start, he didn't make it out of the 5th while allowing four runs and a homer to Seth Smith.

Let's Go Oak-Land!
