Oakland has won five spring training games in a row and are now officially over .500. The A’s just may never lose again.
With Franklin Barreto starring, and Sheldon Neuse participating, in the ongoing second base battle last night against the Cubs, the other three candidates for the position will be going this afternoon. Jorge Mateo will be leading off and starting at shortstop, Tony Kemp will be batting second and playing second, and Vimael Machin is batting sixth and playing third base. Seth Brown is getting another start at first base, and Khris Davis continues to ease back into action at DH.
Chris Bassitt is starting for the A’s. First pitch is at 12:05. Lineups are below.
