Game Thread #89: Oakland Athletics at Cleveland Indians

We've nearly reached the All Star Break, and at the rate the A's are losing pitchers, the break couldn't come at a better time for the team to recover and regroup, unless you are taking a party bus from Cleveland to Cincinnati (ahem, Vogt, Gray). This is the final series before the break and the A's will try to enter the break on a winning note by taking the series from Cleveland. Kendall Graveman will face off against Danny Salazar.

Good afternoon and Happy Friday to all! The A's are playing their last series before the All Star Break as Kendall Graveman will continue to build on his terrific season so far as he takes on Cleveland's Danny Salazar. Salazar, the righty, will be seeing an A's lineup with the red-hot Mark Canha batting from the second slot in the lineup. I like the look of the rest as the A's will try to score some runs to back Graveman, who is making his first start against Cleveland.

Here are your lineups:
