The A's will try to win the series against a Seattle team that has played them tough so far this season as Dan Straily takes the mound, with a 3-0 record in his last six starts. Meanwhile, the A's offense will match up against Aaron Harang, who has had an uneven season, but the A's would like to get him on an off-day.
The A's, having cooled down considerably this week, would like to finish the weekend strong, and a win tonight could go a long way before the red-hot NL teams come visit next week.
After his success last night, the A's leave Yoenis Cespedes out in left field; Norris will be catching, and Sogard (who is actually batting .260, believe it or not) will be playing second base, putting Lowrie at shortstop.
Here are the lineups:
LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
