Game Thread #71: A’s vs. Mariners

It’s #FilthyFrankie Day at the Coliseum

MLB: Kansas City Royals at Oakland Athletics Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

Oakland will try to avoid another three-game sweep today, hoping for a win against the Seattle Mariners in the last game of the homestand before a 3-city road trip begins tomorrow.

It’ll be a tough task for the offense as they face off against last season’s Cy Young Award winner in Robbie Ray. He hasn’t been quite that good this year but he’s still a dangerous arm that can rack up the K’s. He’s pitched once this year against the A’s, giving up three runs in six innings of work about a month ago.

He’ll be opposed by Frankie Montas. It’s only a month and change until the trade deadline so these next few starts from Montas are likely to be some of his last in the Green & Gold and today could even be his final home start, so enjoy him while you can, everyone.
