Game Thread #66: Oakland Athletics at Los Angeles Angels

After a tough, hard, tired, frustrating loss to their rivals last night, wasting one of the best throws ever and a brilliant pitching performance, the A's try to regroup and salvage one game in the final series of this road trip. But they will have to beat Weaver again.

Well, it's been a tough week for the green and gold, and it doesn't get easier in today's game. The A's, backed by Tommy Milone, will try avoid the sweep by beating Jered Weaver for a second time this month, no easy feat.

The A's are just plain tired, and it shows all over their game right now. Josh Donaldson will get a much-needed day off tonight (and with the off day tomorrow), leaving everyone else to pick up the pieces. Both Crisp and Gentry are in the lineup, patrolling the outfield with the hero from last night, Cespedes, and Callaspo will take a spell at third.

Chin up.
