Is it too much to ask to try and top last night?
No, it is not.
The A’s are striving for their second consecutive series win and have to beat David Price and the 17-3 Red Sox in order to do so. Going for the A’s is Daniel Mengden as he aims to build on his last successful start. Matt Olson is getting the day off, with Mark Canha manning first base.
First pitch is at 1:05. Lineups are below.
A's day-after lineup: SS Semien, RF Piscotty, 2B Lowrie, DH Davis, 3B Chapman, 1B Canha, LF Pinder, CF Smolinski, C Maxwell. On the hill: RH Mengden. In the clouds: LH Manaea.— John Shea (@JohnSheaHey) April 22, 2018
