Game Thread #115: A’s at Astros

Please avoid the sweep

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Los Angeles Angels Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

After losing the first two games of the series, Oakland will try to snap their 7-game losing streak in the finale against the Houston Astros.

Lefty Cole Irvin is on the mound and will try to play stopper. He’s been a completely different pitcher on the road this year, with a 1.66 ERA at home and a 4.58 mark on the road. One of the remaining goals for him this year ought to be finding his groove and figuring it out in the road.
