Greetings and Happy Friday the 13th, AN! America’s Most Bunted here; deigning to do my least worst as your host this evening in the inimitable baseballgirl’s stead.
Tonight, the A’s roll into Arlington, riding high after an impressive 3-1 series win against the Astros in Houston that put Oakland in front of the AL Wild Card race. Tonight’s foe is another AL West rival, the Texas Rangers. The A’s are sending Chris Bassitt (10-5, 3.64 ERA) to the mound, facing off against the Rangers’ recently called up Brock Burke (0-1, 3.52 ERA). Let’s go, Oakland!
