The A's are headed back home and trying to pick up some wins. They host the Indians for a three-game series.

The Oakland Athletics did not have a particularly encouraging road trip. The team has come back to earth a bit after their blistering start to the second half and dropped series to the Chicago White Sox and Kansas City Royals over the past week.

The A's now return to the O.co Coliseum to host the visiting Cleveland Indians, who have just dropped two of three to the Los Angeles Angels. The Indians are playing like a team with their shoes tied together, so it would behoove the A's to at least score a series win here and stay a step ahead of the Los Angeles Angels.
