Lefties on the rubber for both teams in today's rubber game.

Shhh, the A's are secretly good.

I'll skip the floofy pre-game talk today. Both teams have lefties on the mound today. Sean Manaea and Martin Perez had pretty comparable first starts of the season, going 6 innings, getting 4 K's, and giving up 4 or 3 runs respectively. Kendall Graveman helped the A's bounce back after a crushing first game of the series, and now the A's have a shot at getting above .500 with their #2 on the mound. Can they seize the opportunity?
