Game Thread #157: Oakland Athletics vs. Los Angeles Angels

New, comments

As the season winds down in earnest, the A's look to reduce their magic number by another pair tonight behind Sonny Gray. The A's will be facing another LHP in Wade LeBlanc.

Good evening and welcome to another exciting evening of your 2014 Oakland Athletics baseball. We're never boring around here, and I'm not sure that's a good thing at times. But this is not one of those times! The A's have played exciting, drama-filled, high-scoring and fun, and just a little bit of nail-biting baseball for two whole days! The A's look to make it a well-timed three in a row with another win over the Angels tonight.

In fact, the A's don't really need to scoreboard watch; win four more out of their remaining six and they are in, but who are we kidding? Everyone knows Seattle is getting killed by nearly double-digits yet again tonight. So if the A's can manage another win, the magic number? She is two.

If...if...if.

Here are your lineups for tonight. Reddick and Vogt refuse to be left out, so they're in for the long haul. Can they do it?
