Game Thread #52: A’s vs. Astros

#FilthyFrankie Day!

MLB: Texas Rangers at Oakland Athletics Neville E. Guard-USA TODAY Sports

After losing the first game yesterday, the A’s will try to take the second one of the series tonight against the Houston Astros.

It’ll be Frankie Montas taking the bump tonight for Oakland. He was absolutely dominant in his last outing, but couldn’t get a win thanks to an anemic A’s offense. He’ll be hoping that changes tonight, but they’ll be facing Cristian Javier, and even though he’s their fourth starter, he’s taken it to another level this year and is just as capable of shutting down Oakland. Runs may be at a premium in this matchup tonight at the Coliseum.
