The A's are gaining a head of steam heading into the All-Star break. They host the Mariners for a trio of games at the O.co Coliseum.

The Oakland Athletics hoped that a return to the O.co Coliseum would provide them with some momentum and thus far it has delivered in spades. The A's swept the Boston Red Sox in three straight games and are definitely rolling as they head into their final series of the first half.

The Seattle Mariners are coming to town for the last three games before the All-Star break begins on Monday. The A's are looking like a much stronger team at the moment than their American League West rivals and will try to keep the wins coming heading into the unofficial midpoint of the season.
