Game Thread #157: Athletics at Angels

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Daniel Mengden is taking on Ricky Nolasco this evening. While Mengden started his season strong but finds himself fading, Nolasco currently has a thirteen inning scoreless streak and has three scoreless outings this month after stumbling out of the gates this year.

Since the whole swinging the bats thing hasn't been working out recently Bob Melvin has declared that the A's will have a bit of a bunt-fest from now till the end of the season. Hold onto your butts.

The A's are currently 2.5 games behind the Angels for not-last place in the division. First pitch is at 7:05.
