Rays and A’s Open Three-Game Set in Oakland Monday Night
Athletics clinging to slim lead in AL West
Oakland jumped out to the best record in the American League and a large lead in the AL West. Now, they have just a one-game lead in the West over the Los Angeles Angels. The Athletics will send one of the most recent acquisitions to the mound tonight in the person of Jeff Samardzija. In his first five starts with the A’s, The Shark has a 2-1 record and an ERA of 3.19. He struggled his last time on the mound, which came against the Astros.
Rays look to Alex Cobb as top starter in rotation
Cobb has become the de facto ace of the Rays rotation with the trade of David Price to the Detroit Tigers at the deadline. Cobb will look to win his sixth straight decision. He has not lost a game since June 23, posting a 5-0 record and an ERA of 2.65 over his previous six starts. In his last start, Cobb recorded a season-high 12 strikeouts when the Rays defeated the Milwaukee Brewers by a score of 5-1.
