Game Thread #101: A’s vs. Astros

First sweep of 2022?

MLB: Houston Astros at Oakland Athletics Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Oakland gets another crack at their first series sweep of the season today, facing off against the Houston Astros in the finale on a sunny day at the Coliseum.

They’ll be relying on Cole Irvin to do it. He’s been one of their most consistent starters this year and especially good against these guys. In three starts against the Astros this year he’s pitched 17 23 innings while only allowing four runs. Pretty solid against a top offense like Houston’s.
