On Tuesday, the Oakland Athletics will return to the East Bay having just taken two of three games against the scuffling Boston Red Sox. They will take on the Toronto Blue Jays for a short two-game series and face the two strongest starters in the Toronto rotation.
The A's are just 3.5 games behind the Texas Rangers in the American League West and will be attempting to close that gap during their homestand. The Blue Jays will be no pushovers, but are coming off a four-game series split against the Los Angeles Angels where they dropped the last two games.
