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:
|TORONTO BLUE JAYS||OAKLAND A'S|
|Jose Reyes - SS||Billy Burns - CF|
|Josh Donaldson - 3B||Stephen Vogt - 1B|
|Jose Bautista - RF||Billy Butler - DH|
|Edwin Encarnacion - DH||Ben Zobrist - 2B|
|Justin Smoak - 1B||Jake Smolinski - LF|
|Russell Martin - C||Brett Lawrie - 3B|
|Ezequiel Carrera - LF||Josh Phegley - C|
|Kevin Pillar - CF||Josh Reddick - RF|
|Devon Travis - 2B||Marcus Semien - SS|
|Mark Buehrle - LHP||Kendall Graveman - RHP|
LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
