Good evening! Happy Friday of a holiday weekend! Let's pretend this is a three-game series against the Angels and we're two games behind in the Division, just like in 2012. It's a lot more fun this way than what really happened, including last night. Who's with me?!
After Sonny Gray turned a rough start into a quality outing in his seven innings last night, Jon Lester will try to throw a gem tonight, and make no mistake; the A's will need it. They will be facing off against Jered Weaver.
I love Crisp/Fuld in the one, two; Donaldson is coming off one of his better nights all season, and Vogt is in the lineup. Callaspo is at second, but here's to some late-inning defensive replacement!
Here are your lineups:
|OAKLAND A'S||LOS ANGELES ANGELS|
|Coco Crisp - CF||Kole Calhoun - RF|
|Sam Fuld - LF||Mike Trout - CF|
|Josh Donaldson - 3B||Albert Pujols - 1B|
|Stephen Vogt - 1B||Josh Hamilton - LF|
|Brandon Moss - DH||Howie Kendrick - 2B|
|Josh Reddick - RF||David Freese - DH|
|Derek Norris - C||Erick Aybar - SS|
|Alberto Callaspo - 2B||Chris Iannetta - C|
|Eric Sogard - SS||Gordon Beckham - 3B|
|Jon Lester - LHP||Jered Weaver - RHP|
LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
