The Oakland Athletics are coming off a terrific series against the first-place Texas Rangers where they took three of four games and roughed up superstar pitcher Yu Darvish. They'll have a significantly less tricky opponent on their schedule as they visit the Arizona Diamondbacks for three games beginning on Friday.
The D-backs have had an underwhelming season so far and are not living up to expectations. The second interleague series of the year for the A's might be just what they need to maintain this momentum as of late.
