Game Thread #144: A’s at Astros

Can they make it two in a row?

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Washington Nationals Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Coming off their first win in a week, the A’s will try to make it two in a row in the first game of the series against a division rival on Roberto Clemente Day.

Oakland will be sending out right-hander James Kaprielian to take in the Houston Astros tonight, who is set for his 23rd start of the season.

One oddity from today’s lineup: Seth Brown is penciled into center field while Ramon Laureano is in right.
