Game thread #147: A’s at Astros

Final game of the year against these guys

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Houston Astros Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports

The A’s take on the Houston Astros in the final matchup of the season between these two division rivals.

Catcher Shea Langeliers is behind the plate today, and Dermis Garcia gets the start in left field to make room for the recently-recalled Jordan Diaz, who is getting into his first MLB game this afternoon. He’s had a solid year in the minors with the bay, and Oakland will use the final few weeks to get an up close look at him.
