The A's earned the elusive "W" last night, and look to build on that strong offensive performance as they take on the Reds again today, looking for the series sweep.

Jim Cowsert-US PRESSWIRE

The A's take on the Reds again today, looking for a sweep of the brief 2-game series. The A's A.J. Griffin will take on Homer Bailey, who has had an up and down season so far this year. Griffin has struggled a bit in his last few outings, so he will look to get his first June win, and set things back on track in the game today.

The Reds will be missing Brandon Phillips, who is on paternity leave, so that is only good news for the A's. Coco Crisp had a family matter this morning, so he is not starting, but should be back today.

Here are your lineups:

LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
