Game Thread #67: Oakland Athletics vs. New York Yankees

The A's try to make it two in a row over the New York Yankees after a wild win last night, ending with a come-from-behind victory in the bottom of the tenth inning. Or if you're in New York, early this morning.

Happy Friday, all, and welcome to another exciting night of A's baseball! I'd like to say that last night's game was incredible, and it was, but mostly because the game was brought to us by the letters "B" and "S", standing for Blown Save, something the A's did in every inning. They only won the game because they scored in their last at-bat, not leaving any room for the Yankees to hit again, but really, are we quibbling about wins? Especially exciting wins? We are not. Let's do it again tonight.

Tonight's game is a little earlier than usual; starting at 6:35PM, and will feature the red-hot Sean Manaea, winner of his last five starts. He will face off against the Yankees Luis Severino.

I'll be live at the game tomorrow night. I hope the A's will be going for three in a row.
