Game Thread #138: A’s vs. White Sox

First of four against a team still in the playoff race

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Baltimore Orioles Brent Skeen-USA TODAY Sports

The A’s welcome the Chicago White Sox to the Coliseum to kick off a 4-game series.

Beginning the series for Oakland will be JP Sears. He’s been great to begin his A’s career but he’ll be opposed by AL Cy Young contender Dylan Cease.

We’ll also be greeting old friend Elvis Andrus back for the first time since his release; he signed on with Chicago for the remainder of the year and has been playing regularly. He’ll start the game leading off for his new team.
