Though familiar to the team in the first half, it’s been a while since the Oakland A’s have been on a seven-game losing skid. Unfortunately, that’s where they find themselves today going into a new four-game series at home against the Detroit Tigers.

For the starting pitcher matchup, rookie righty Luis Medina will be toeing the rubber for the A’s against the Tigers’ Tarik Skubal, a potential front-of-the-rotation southpaw who’s had trouble staying healthy in his young career.
