Game Thread #124: Athletics vs Astros

MLB: Houston Astros at Oakland Athletics Andrew Villa-USA TODAY Sports

What a magical season.

With a win today the A’s are in first place all by themselves. They will have to beat Justin Verlander in order to do so - no small task. However, with Sean Manaea countering for the A’s, this game, like Friday’s tense affair, could very well go down to the wire.

But let’s be real here, we all know the A’s are going to sweep and not look back on their quest to win 100 games and coast into the playoffs.

Lineups are below. First pitch is at 1:05.
