It’s warm up here in Oakland…and the A’s are hot, having won seven in a row. Hoping we can knock them off their streak a bit. The last time the team played here, they faced Barry Zito like they are today and went 15 innings. The Dodgers won on back-to-back bases loaded walks.
We also made a transaction today – we reinstated Navarro from the DL and optioned him to Triple-A, where he’s been rehabbing. As for the lineup:
Nomar, 1B (now qualified for the batting leaders)
Saenz, DH (one of three Dodgers to ever homer as a DH)
Kemp, LF (he’ll be on ESPNews live at 3:40 PT/6:40 ET from our dugout)
