The Oakland Athletics host the New York Yankees for a four-game series in the East Bay. Can the surprising A's shock one of the best teams in baseball?

The Oakland Athletics have only lost twice in their last dozen games. They are over .500 and playing shockingly good baseball, scratching out wins, coming from behind and continually walking off the victor. They're beginning to turn a lot of heads and suddenly find themselves in contention for the second Wild Card spot. Can their run continue? They'll face a tough task over the next four days.

The New York Yankees come to town on Thursday to kick off a big four-game series. The O.co Coliseum is sure to keep the playing field level. The A's would like nothing better than to stun the Yanks as they have already stunned so many other teams this season.
