Good afternoon and welcome to Thursday baseball, the official 10th game of the young season as the A’s close out an absolutely thrilling 4-games series against the Boston Red Sox.
The A’s starting pitching has, of course, been lights-out at the Coliseum during this homestand, and we look for one more stellar home performance this afernoon, as Brett Anderson takes the mound in search of his second win. He’s also riding the A’s longest home stretch of scoreless pitching.
Will Ramon Laureano make another splash today? Let’s find out.
Matt Chapman is out of the lineup today, but rumor has it that he is fine.
Here are the lineups:
|Mookie Betts - RF||Robbie Grossman - LF|
|Andrew Benintendi - LF||Marcus Semien - SS|
|J.D. Martinez - DH||Stephen Piscotty - RF|
|Xander Bogaerts - SS||Khris Davis - DH|
|Eduardo Nunez - 2B||Chad Pinder - 3B|
|Rafael Devers - 3B||Mark Canha - 1B|
|Sam Travis - 1B||Jurickson Profar - 2B|
