A moment of silence for the last Friday night game thread of the season. I'd like to say it's been fun, but it's been real. My Facebook "On this Day" reminded me that two years ago, the A's blew their chance to advance further in the postseason with the loss to the Royals. It's been all downhill from there. Here's to 2017,everyone!
Welcome to the final weekend of Major League baseball, as the A's will try to finish the season strong and the Mariners will try to stay alive. It's a long, long shot for them, but yes, they are still alive. Meanwhile on the A's Danny Valencia was just scratched, which matters for fantasy, but not for the A's.
Here are your lineups:
|OAKLAND A'S||SEATTLE MARINERS|
|Joey Wendle - 2B||Norichika Aoki - LF|
|Stephen Vogt - DH||Seth Smith - RF|
|Ryon Healy - 3B||Robinson Cano - 2B|
|Khris Davis - LF||Nelson Cruz - DH|
|Yonder Alonso - 1B||Kyle Seager - 3B|
|Marcus Semien - SS||Adam Lind - 1B|
|Bruce Maxwell - C||Leonys Martin - CF|
|Jake Smolinski - CF||Mike Zunino - C|
|Matt Olson - RF||Ketel Marte - SS|
|Raul Alcantara - RHP||Taijuan Walker - RHP|
LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
