The Oakland A’s look to bounce back in a must have series against the Seattle Mariners. Brett Anderson will square off against Mariners ace Felix Hernandez. King Felix has put together another great year in spite of the lack of wins. While Hernandez has generally fared well against the A’s, his ERA against Oakland is his second worst against any team this year.
A’s starter Brett Anderson is making his third start since coming off the disabled list, and will be looking to build on his strong performance last week against the Royals.
The A’s will send out rookie prospect Chris Carter into left field for the second straight night as Carter looks to get his first career hit. He’ll be hitting 8th in the lineup. The A’s are looking to Carter to be a long term spark for the offense, but for now would certainly be pleased with simple solid play.
