The A's continue their homestand with a four-game set against the Toronto Blue Jays. They'll be trying to get back to their second-half winning ways.

The Oakland Athletics finally proved themselves to be fallible in their three-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays, losing two straight after picking up their major league-leading 12th walk-off win in Monday's opener. It was the first series the A's has lost in some time. Now they'll try to regain some of that momentum as their homestand continues.

The Toronto Blue Jays will arrive at O.co Coliseum on Thursday for a four-game series. They will be coming off a three-game series against the Seattle Mariners in which they were swept out of town. This may be the perfect opportunity for Oakland to put together another winning steak.
