After last night's thrilling late-inning victory, the A's match-up with the Cubs again tonight as the red-hot Bartolo Colon takes on Matt Garza.

Well, I'm not sure how tonight's game could possibly top the phenomenal game we saw last night, but the magical A's of 2013 will certainly try. I will take a win any way I can get it, so here's to keeping first place alive!

I don't think I need to remind you how the American League pitcher of the month, Bartolo Colon, has pitched recently, but he's running on an 8-game winning streak at a 1.37 ERA. It's pretty incredible.

I hope everyone was able to make it to the game, and the crowds are big enough, even with the BART strike. Here's to hoping that this holiday weekend continues to be magical for the A's. The A's are starting John Jaso tonight, and Coco is back in the field.

Here are your lineups:

LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
