The Oakland Athletics are coming off a terrific series against the first-place Texas Rangers where they took three of four games and roughed up superstar pitcher Yu Darvish. They'll have a significantly less tricky opponent on their schedule as they visit the Arizona Diamondbacks for three games beginning on Friday.

The D-backs have had an underwhelming season so far and are not living up to expectations. The second interleague series of the year for the A's might be just what they need to maintain this momentum as of late.

TV Schedule & Probable Pitchers

On Friday, the game will begin at 6:40 p.m. PT and will be televised on CSN California. You can catch the radio broadcast on 95.7 FM The Game. Lefty phenom Tom Milone gets the start against Daniel Hudson, who is 2-1 with a 4.65 ERA for the Diamondbacks.

Saturday's first pitch will be at 7:10 p.m. PT and the game will be televised on both CSN California and the MLB Network. You can catch the radio broadcast on 95.7 FM The Game. In Jarrod Parker's last start, he came within a couple innings of pitching a no-hitter. He'll go for his third win of the year against the 3-5 Travor Cahill.

The finale on Sunday will begin at 1:10 p.m. PT and will be televised on CSN California. You can catch the radio broadcast on 95.7 FM The Game. The Oakland starter for this game has yet to be determined, but left-hander Joe Saunders will start for Arizona. Saunders has a record of 3-4 and a 3.65 ERA.
