The only two California major league teams with winning records entering today square off at the Coliseum in the final two games before football destroys our pristine field. Actually it wouldn’t be a bad idea for a third team to join them, temporarily, this afternoon.
It’s It would have been Southpaws Galore if the A’s stuck to the stated plan:
Tonight at 7:05: Manaea vs. Rich Hill
Wednesday at 7:05:
BRETT! Fiers vs. Clayton Kershaw
Tonight’s game may be accompanied by a few notes of “Rich Girl”, “She’s Gone” and “Kiss on My List” floating over from the show next door.
Besides Hill, we welcome back John Axford and Max Muncy. I don’t know if Muncy would start either night vs. a lefty although he’s done well against them in limited PAs.
