Athletics Vs. Orioles: Oakland Looks To Sweep Baltimore In Key Late-Season Series

Looking to complete the three-game sweep, the Oakland Athletics send Dan Straily to the mound to take on the resurgent Baltimore Orioles on Sunday afternoon at O.co Coliseum at 1:05 p.m. PST.

The A's used a strong start from Jarrod Parker and a homer from Stephen Drew to top the Orioles on Saturday. The Athletics scored all five of their runs in the third inning on Saturday as Oakland built their lead on Baltimore to three games in the American League Wild Card race. The Orioles currently occupy the second Wild Card spot, and both teams would make the playoffs if the season ended today.

The Athletics are also just two games back of the AL West-leading Texas Rangers.

The rookie Straily will look for his third consecutive victory in just his fifth career start on Sunday. The Orioles counter with starter Randy Wolf, who looks to help Baltimore salvage the final game of the three-game set.
