The A's will send out rookie phenom A.J. Griffin (4-0, 2.26), who became the first pitcher in Oakland history to begin 4-0 as a starter. He was lights out in his last start, retiring the first 14 batters he faced while allowing just one run with noen route to a 7-1 victory over Boston.
Griffin and the A's will have their hands full with Felix Hernandez (13-6, 2.51 ERA), who suffered his first defeat since June 12 in his last start. He allowed five runs over 7.1 innings in a 5-2 loss to the Angels, but still owns the majors' lowest ERA while going 9-0 with a 1.40 ERA over his last 14 starts.
First pitch is set for 7:10 p.m. PT with coverage on CSN California and 95.7 The Game.
