Happy Friday and welcome to the weekend! I wish we were on an extended win streak; I’d like to pretend that the last two games didn’t happen, but as it is, here we are, poised to do some real catch-up in the AL West. It’s still early in the season, but if the A’s want to make a move, now would be a good time. They start tonight in second place, 7.5 games back of the Astros. Let’s hope the A’s bring their “A” game tonight; Houston is good.
But the A’s, and their elite offense, can hit, and we just hope the Mike Fiers of the no-hitter shows up tonight.
Here are your lineups:
|Derek Fisher - DH||Marcus Semien - SS|
|Alex Bregman - SS||Robbie Grossman - LF|
|Michael Brantley - LF||Matt Chapman - 3B|
|Yuli Gurriel - 3B||Matt Olson - 1B|
|Josh Reddick - RF||Stephen Piscotty - RF|
|Robinson Chirinos - C||Mark Canha - DH|
|Tyler White - 1B||Jurickson Profar - 2B|
|Tony Kemp - 2B||Ramon Laureano - CF|
|Jake Marisnick - CF||Josh Phegley - C|
LET’S GO OAK-LAND!
