Game Thread #65: A’s at Red Sox

Heading home after today

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Boston Red Sox Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports

Finally.

At the end of a long and tough road trip, the A’s are eager to get through today’s series finale against Boston and head home.

The lineup will be squaring off against an old friend in Rich Hill. Center fielder Cristian Pache is back in there after having a few days off to clear his head. Hopefully the rest helped reset his bat and he comes out swinging today. Infielder Jonah Bride makes his third start with the A’s but his first at the keystone while Matt Davidson earns the nod at third after hitting a home run in last night’s game.

For the A’s, it’s Paul Blackburn going against the same lineup that put up 10 runs last night. That probably won’t happen against him, right?
