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.
