Game Thread #95: Oakland Athletics vs. Toronto Blue Jays

Tonight's opponent comes with a familiar face as Josh Donaldson makes his first appearance back in Oakland as a member of the Toronto Blue Jays. Kendall Graveman will duel Mark Buehrle as the A's lineup will try to solve the lefty.

Happy Tuesday and welcome to the game thread! I know I don't have the best record at game threading this season, but I'm hoping that as the A's blasted out of the cellar on Sunday with a monster game, that they set up better things for the remaining 67 games of the season.

Tonight's lineup features Josh Donaldson batting second for the Blue Jays. I certainly hope he gets the standing ovation he deserves from the crowd tonight. I like the A's lineup against the lefty Buehrle.

Here are the complete lineups:
