Oakland Athletics

The Oakland Athletics are coming into this game after defeating Tampa Bay in their last face-off. The star in the last game was Sean Murphy who scored three fabulous runs, two hits, and three ribbies. In the first game of the four-game series, Oakland won but lost 9-8 in the second matchup. In Thursday’s game against the Rays, the Oakland Athletics are expected to send Cole Irvin to the mount. Irvin was dismal in his first start for the season against the Phillies and is presently 12-18 with a 4.79 ERA in his entire MLB career.

Players to watch: S. Murphy C (GP 5, AB 21, R 3, H 2, 2B 1, 3B 1, HR 0, RBI 1, TB 5, BB 1, SO 9, SB 0, AVG 0.095, OBP 0.174, SLG 0.238, OPS 0.412, WAR 0), T. Kemp 2B (GP 5, AB 21, R 3, H 7, 2B 0, 3B 0, HR 0, RBI 2, TB 7, BB 2, SO 1, SB 0, AVG 0.333, OBP 0.391, SLG 0.333, OPS 0.725, WAR 0).

Tampa Bay Rays

The Tampa Bay Rays were stunning in their maiden series against the Orioles and on average have won four games out of their first six games played this season. However, they have been stumbling inconsistently against the A’s in this series. In the last face-off against Oakland, Tampa Bay’s Yandy Diaz scored three hits and one run. On Thursday, the Tampa Bay Rays will be handing the ball to Drew Rasmussen. Rasmussen has played 95 innings in his entire career and has allowed nine homers under his watch.

Players to watch: W. Franco SS (GP 5, AB 20, R 5, H 11, 2B 3, 3B 1, HR 0, RBI 4, TB 16, BB 1, SO 3, SB 1, AVG 0.55, OBP 0.545, SLG 0.8, OPS 1.345, WAR 0), B. Lowe 2B (GP 5, AB 19, R 5, H 5, 2B 0, 3B 0, HR 2, RBI 4, TB 11, BB 2, SO 5, SB 0, AVG 0.263, OBP 0.318, SLG 0.579, OPS 0.897, WAR 0).
