Spring 2020 Game Thread #13: Athletics vs Cubs

MLB: Spring Training-San Francisco Giants at Oakland Athletics Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

It is a rare nighttime addition of spring ball, televised and against the Cubs. First pitch is at 6:05.

Tonight is Sean Murphy’s spring debut, batting sixth in a regular-heavy lineup.

Matt Olson will be in the DH slot tonight, with the red hot Seth Brown getting reps at first base. Sheldon Neuse, at third, and Franklin Barreto, at second, are the second base candidates in action at the game’s outset.

Frankie Montas is getting the start tonight, looking to build on a strong spring thus far.

Full lineups are below.
