The Red Sox will wrap up their seven game West Coast road trip with three games in Oakland against the A's before returning home to host the Yankees before the All-Star break. Despite their slow start, the team is just 6.5-games behind the Yankees in the A.L. East and a .5-game behind the Orioles for the second Wild Card playoff spot so they are in contention.
Here are the pitching matchups for the series with the A's:
Monday: Daisuke Matsuaka (0-2, 4.91) v. Jarrod Parker (4-3, 2.57)
Tuesday: Jon Lester (5-5, 4.53) v. Bartolo Colon (6-7, 4.22)
Wednesday: Franklin Morales (1-1, 2.59) v. A.J. Griffin (0-0, 1.50)
