Athletics vs. Angels, Starting Lineups: Trevor Cahill Looking to Keep A's on Track

Coming off of their big win against the Los Angeles Angels last night, the Oakland A’s want to make it two in a row against their AL West rivals tonight. Good thing they have just the right guy on the mound to continue their streak.

Trevor Cahill (6-1 1.79) has been down right electric all season long, and will hopefully be again tonight. This is his first start of the year against the Halos, but has a 4-1 record against them lifetime with a 1.81 ERA. He’s also coming off an impressive one hit performance across the Bay against the Giants this weekend. Hopefully he’ll have some run support, but likely won’t need much.

As for tonight’s lineup, Josh Willingham will be in at DH for Hideki Matsui, effectively putting Ryan Sweeny out in left field. Landon Powell will be behind the dish, giving Kurt Suzuki a night off.

Your Oakland A’s:

1. Coco Crisp CF
2. Daric Barton 1B
3. David DeJesus RF
4. Josh Willingham DH
5. Ryan Sweeney LF
6. Landon Powell C
