The A's are trying to keep their bats hot. Can they make short work of the Padres?

The Oakland Athletics will somewhat reluctantly return home to the O.co Coliseum to host an interleague series against the San Diego Padres beginning on Friday night. The A's are fresh off a three-game sweep of the Colorado Rockies that saw their bats all come alive. Oakland will be hoping that trend can continue into the weekend.

The Padres, likewise, are probably sad to bid adieu to Safeco Field, where they just swept the Seattle Mariners in three games. One of these teams will see their winning streak come to an end by the time Saturday rolls around.

On Saturday, the game will begin at 1:05 p.m. PT and will be televised on CSN California. You can catch the radio broadcast on 95.7 FM The Game. Oakland's pitcher for this game is yet to be determined, but Ross Ohlendorf will be looking to push his record to 2-0 for the Padres.

Sunday's finale will begin at 1:05 p.m. PT and will be televised on CSN California. You can catch the radio broadcast on 95.7 FM The Game. Bartolo Colon attempts to climb back over .500 as he faces off against the 3-7 Clayton Richard.
