The A's are playing a day game, so avert your eyes. In an effort to make it watchable, however, Bob Melvin has held Billy Butler out of the starting lineup! Rejoice! Chi Chi Gonzales, a 23 year rookie takes the mound for the Rangers looking to extend his scoreless innings streak past 14 innings to start his career. I am disappointed to tell you Chi Chi is not 5'1". Scott Kazmir looks to regain his early season form, as he gets the start for the A's.

Let's go A's!
