Game Thread #51: A’s vs. Diamondbacks

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Toronto Blue Jays Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

Good evening and welcome to Friday night baseball! We’re going for our fifth consecutive Friday night win. Tonight’s game features Sean Manaea facing off against Patrick Corbin; what should be a terrific pitching match-up.

Corbin started the season off well, but his velocity has been down lately (too many sliders?), but he’s still a young lefty, who, like Manaea he is in the top 10 in ERA.

The A’s won one of the three games against Seattle, but they had chances to win all three. Let’s hope they can take the first one tonight.

Drinks ready, long weekend, let’s GO!
