Day baseball!

The A's send Kendall Graveman to the hill, looking to win their three game series against a pretty decent Orioles team. After a fantastic Chris Bassitt start last night, Graveman looks to get groundballs to avoid more dingers on a warm Oakland day.

Today's lineup features newly acquired Danny Valencia at third with Brett "Breehhhtttt" Lawrie making a rare, but increasingly frequent start at second. With a lefty on the hill for the Orioles, Vogt and Coco get the day off but Ike Davis somehow still gets the nod at 1B. You can't win em all.

The A's have a decent shot at 100 wins if they don't lose anymore. Let's do it!
