Game Thread #90: Oakland Athletics vs. Cleveland Indians

Baseball kicks off with a Friday night game thread

Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Friday and welcome to the Friday night game thread; which was supposed to be known as the Sonny Gray showcase game. BUT HE WAS JUST SCRATCHED? WAIT NOW HE’S NOT. HE IS PITCHING. Also, an Indians’ beat writer may have some explaining to do. It is still the Sonny Gray Showcase game tonight as Sonny will pitch for his maximum trade value. He will be facing off against Carlos Carrasco, who has been outstanding in the first half of the season. The Indians are having a good season; meanwhile the A’s are trying to get back to 10 games under .500.
