First pitch for tonight's game is scheduled at 5:10 PM Pacific Time, and it will take just 20 minutes before this series between the Oakland A's and Chicago White Sox enters its 10th hour. Yes, game three of this four game set against the Pale Hose has already run eight hours, 40 minutes, which I am sure's Jane Lee is "thrilled" about.

The A's called up a fifth left hander to their bullpen as a result of the extended bullpen action in recent days, he'll wear number 75 tonight.

Oakland sends Cody Martin to the hill in place of Jesse Chavez, who was transferred to the 60-day disabled list with a fractured rib. Opposing Martin is White Sox right-hander Erik Johnson, who is 1-0 with a 3.27 ERA and nine strikeouts in two starts.

Billy Burns and Danny Valencia remain day-to-day, while Stephen Vogt took some batting practice today, reports's Jane Lee.
