Today’s Featured Game

Oakland vs. Arizona—8:40pm CT MLB.TV

Oakland is officially the hottest team in baseball, if not the best. Fresh off a sweep of the Garlic Fries that ended in trolley-stomping fashion (a 15-3 beatdown), the Athletics (16-6) face the Arizona D’Bags (11-11). Last night, Kemp went 1-2 with a run scored, and was then relieved by Pinder, who went 3-4 with a run and 2 RBI. Everything’s coming up Milhouse for the former roommates of the Raiders.
