Game Thread #79: A’s at Mariners

New month, new team?

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Seattle Mariners Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to July!

Oakland starts a brand new month tonight against the Mariners, and it doesn’t matter that they’ve lost four straight, it’s time to turn the calendar!

Second baseman Nick Allen swaps places with Tony Kemp in the lineup tonight, taking over the leadoff spot while Kemp bats ninth. Otherwise a pretty similar lineup to yesterday’s when they scored six runs. I like the thinking.

As for the starter, James Kaprielian will try to hold down the Mariners. He’s been much improved over his previous two starts but remains looking for that elusive first win of the season. Let’s see if he gets it tonight.
