Series finale!

It’s the Oakland A’s last game of the series against the Texas Rangers, and the last of their homestand at the Coliseum!

The A’s face an old AL West nemesis in Garrett Richards, who was once the ace of the Angels staff before injuries took their toll. Since then he’s gone to San Diego, then Boston, and now Texas. However, Richards won’t be in there for long, as he’s just serving as an opener ahead of a long reliever, RHP Spencer Howard.

Oakland’s lineup has some changes, as they continue to try out different arrangements and find everybody some playing time. Elvis Andrus and Cristian Pache get a rest today, which makes room for McKinney and McDonald to get starts in the outfield. Both Allens are in there too, with Austin showing off his bat at DH, and Nick looking to get his throws straightened out at shortstop.
