The San Francisco Giants and Oakland Athletics are playing the third and final game of their series. So far the A’s lead the series 2-0, having outscored the Giants 12-0.

They’re also playing the sixth and final game of their season series. So far the A’s lead the series 5-0, having outscored the Giants 42-16.

Honestly, I’m not feeling super optimistic about the Giants chances in this game.

Notes

Still no Yaz: Mike Yastrzemski remains unavailable to play due to a mild strain in his right calf.

A reset for Bart: Joey Bart has been struggling big time. He gets a day off, and with Johnny Cueto scheduled to pitch Monday, Bart will likely get consecutive off days.


Enjoy the baseball, friends.
