On this Fathers’ Day, it is the swing game between the A’s and Mariners. Both teams have traded lopsided victories in one game of this series thus far, with the Mariners winning 9-2 on Friday and the A’s winning 11-2 yesterday.
For the A’s, the rookie Tanner Anderson will be getting his second career start, after impressing last Friday in his MLB debut against the Rays. The righty will have a chance to firmly cement himself in the rotation with another strong start today, against a very homer happy offense. Against him will be the veteran Mike Leake, who has been on a bit of a hot streak after a slow start to the year.
First pitch is at 1:07. Lineups are below.
