Game Thread #36: Athletics at Rangers

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The A's have a golden opportunity to even up the series this evening and set up a rubber game tomorrow afternoon. Sonny Gray gets the ball for Oakland looking to build on the positives from what was a mixed outing last Sunday against the Tigers. Opposing him is Nick Martinez who (insert favorite small sample size qualifier) has allowed a staggering 2.59 HR/9 innings so far in 2017. This matchup looks good for the Green and Gold who have plenty of pop scattered about this lineup. Clear skies and warm temperatures in Arlington should lead to an exciting game. Let's go A's!
