It’s game time and the A’s are putting Austin Pruitt on the mound to start/open the game. With Seattle fielding a righty-heavy lineup at the top, the A’s will look to eke some more advantages out of the 1st inning by saving southpaw Ken Waldichuk for the latter two-thirds of the Mariners lineup.
It looks like Rooker’s getting a night off with Ruiz DH’ing to allow Laureano, Brown, and Bleday to start in the outfield. Diaz is also spelling Allen at shortstop for tonight.
