Game Thread #85: A’s vs. Indians

MLB: Cleveland Indians at Oakland Athletics
Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

Those amazing A’s are going for the sweep, for their second consecutive sweep, and a 7-game winning streak. Trying to keep the magic going is hard throwing RHP Frankie Montas, opposed by Mike Cleavinger. Today’s photo depicts Montas in the form of an elephant.

Perhaps most startling about the A’s current 12-2 run is they have done it without a HR from Khris Davis and without Matt Chapman. Go figure. Here are today’s lineups:
