Game Thread #89: A’s at Rangers

Enjoy these last few before the All-Star break next week

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Texas Rangers Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The A’s take on the Texas Rangers tonight at Globe Life Field in game 2 of this three game series.

After hitting a home run in yesterday’s high-scoring loss, Sheldon Neuse rises all the way up in the lineup from ninth to fifth. And after getting hit by a pitch in the hand yesterday, Stephen Piscotty is, as expected, out of tonight’s lineup. Skye Bolt replaces him while Ramon Laureano slides over to right field.

On the mound for Oakland will be James Kaprielian. The righty has been hot over his past four starts, allowing just 7 runs in 22 23 innings for a 2.78 ERA. Can he keep it up against a hot offense like Texas?
