After rescuing a win on Sunday to avoid a sweep in San Francisco, the A’s are properly back home this week with series at the Coliseum against the Texas Rangers and Boston Red Sox.
Season so far: 2-2
The A’s and Rangers split a four-game series in Arlington last week and now will renew their rivalry. The scheduled starting pitching match-ups are as follows:
Gm1. James Kaprielian – Mike Foltynewicz
Gm2. Chris Bassitt – Kolby Allard
Gm3. Sean Manaea – Dane Dunning.
Games 1 and 2 will see repeat match-ups with Kap and Foltynewicz lining up again (both pitched 6 innings in Game 3 of last week’s series), and Bassitt and Allard also matching up one more time.
Season so far: A’s won 2 out of 3 in Boston in mid-May.
Gm1. Frankie Montas – Eduardo Rodriguez
Gm2. Cole Irvin – Garrett Richards
Gm3. James Kaprielian – Nick Pivetta
