Game #160: Oakland Athletics vs. Los Angeles Angels

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Oakland Athletics Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports

You. Guys. It’s the last Friday night game thread of the regular season. And I have to believe—and maybe this 2018 Oakland Athletics has made me believe—that there will be another A’s game next Friday night; in Boston, where the A’s look to open Game 1 of the ALDS. Here’s to hoping, everyone!

The A’s have clinched the second Wild Card, in a season full of delightful surprises, in a world in which whimsy and magic are all too hard to come by. Let’s enjoy these games in Anaheim as the A’s prep for their winner-take-all game on Wednesday.

Tonight’s starter (curious, for sure) is Lou Trivino; perhaps your Wild Card starter? Let’s see.

I’ll be back to recap tonight’s game.

Here are the lineups:
