Game Thread #159: A’s at Rangers

It’s the beginning of the end.

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Philadelphia Phillies

It’s here, folks.

We’ve made it to the final series of the season, and the momentum is in our favor.

Coming off a Mark Canha walk-off last night, the A’s will send Sean Manaea to the mound. It’s been 10 days since he last pitched, when he tossed 5 innings of 1-run ball for the win over the Phillies.

Miguel González is slated to pitch for the Rangers. He’s on a bit of a tear, only giving up 2 runs over his last 11 innings. His team got pummeled 12-2 by the Astros last night, though.

Now that’s the A’s have secured their first winning month in well over a year, sit back, relax, and enjoy the final four games of 2017.
