Time for more Oakland A’s baseball! Today they’ll face the Rangers, in a home game at Hohokam.

Lineup:

  1. Matt Joyce, RF
  2. Franklin Barreto, 2B
  3. Marcus Semien, SS
  4. Khris Davis, DH
  5. Matt Olson, 1B
  6. Brandon Moss, LF
  7. Sheldon Neuse, 3B
  8. Boog Powell, CF
  9. Josh Phegley, C

On the hill will be Jharel Cotton, with the following pitchers listed on the lineup card: Andrew Triggs, Santiago Casilla, Liam Hendriks, Ryan Buchter, Raul Alcantara, Bobby Wahl, Eric Jokisch, and Jarret Martin.

Starting for the Rangers is Clayton Blackburn, who sounds like a fictional literary character but is actually a former Giants mid-round draft pick who was acquired by Texas last year. He spent all of the last three seasons in Triple-A, where he posted a 3.0 K/BB rate.
