Game Thread #29: Oakland Athletics vs. Detroit Tigers

The A's, fresh off an exciting one-game winning streak, face the Tigers tonight in the opening night of the home weekend series. This game will feature Michael Fulmer against Andrew Triggs.

Hi everyone, and welcome to another exciting Friday night of the drinking thread (which, TBH, is becoming easier and easier to do as the second month of the season opens), or as we like to call it, a Warriors off-day. Which means, we are all you've got as in-flight entertainment tonight, so buckle up! The good news is that Andrew Triggs is going to pitch tonight, and he's been nothing but aces on the mound, twirling a gem his last start. The bad news is that I'm 1-3 on this young season on Friday nights, and much like the A's offense, I need to up my game.

Speaking of the A's offense, here is our lineup tonight:
