In Game #69 (Nice!) the A's look to double sweep the Padres over a four game home and home series. Derek Norris plays first for the Padres, so look for lots of E3's today. Stephen Vogt will never get an off day, apparently. Thanks Bob!

Kendall Graveman was nothing short of studly his last time out, but lost 1-0 as the A's failed to push a run across. The A's scored 16 last night so hopefully they left some for today. There's no way Graveman can lose two straight 1-0 games, right? Right?

If the A's win their season high 5th straight game today, they will be drop to single digits in games under .500. If that doesn't get you excited, I don't know what will.

Let's go Oakland!!!
