After last night’s thrilling National League Wild Card game, the expectations may be fairly high for tonight’s AL game. Our division foes who utterly dominated the Jays this year will take on the one team the Jays managed to utterly dominate. After losing the wild card game last year, the Athletics should have extra fire under them to win this one.

Here are tonight’s lineups.

Today's Lineups

Yandy Diaz - 1B Marcus Semien - SS
Tommy Pham - DH Ramon Laureano - RF
Austin Meadows - LF Matt Chapman - 3B
Travis d'Arnaud - C Matt Olson - 1B
Matt Duffy - 3B Mark Canha - CF
Avisail Garcia - RF Jurickson Profar - 2B
Willy Adames - SS Khris Davis - DH
Kevin Kiermaier - CF Robbie Grossman - LF
Mike Brosseau - 2B Sean Murphy - C
