A’s fans and I’m sure A’s players are still abuzz from last night’s incredible experience at the Oakland Coliseum. But tonight, both teams will be at it again, this time in a much more subdued atmosphere. Our Oakland Athletics will go for consecutive victory number eight and a third series win in a row against the AL East leading Tampa Bay Rays.
A’s skipper Mark Kotsay will send righthander Luis Medina (1-5, 7.53 ERA) to the mound against Rays righty Tyler Glasnow (1-0, 2.87 ERA). Glasnow is making just his fourth start of the season after being activated from the Injured List (IL) May 27th.
Glasnow will face the following A’s lineup:
Medina will face a Rays lineup that looks like this:
The first pitch is scheduled for 6:40 PM PDT.
