The A's will attempt to sweep the Twins this morning behind A.J. Griffin and the all right-handed lineup. With Texas on an off-day, the A's have an opportunity to increase their lead to 3.5 games before going into a pivotal three-game series in Texas this weekend.
Behind another big third inning, the A’s took a lead they would both add on to and never relinquish. A.J. Griffin had an impressive outing – but of course allowing a solo HR, his only blemish – over 7 one-run innings.
