Cleveland at Oakland, 10:05 (STO)

Starting Pitchers:

Cleveland: Jake Westbrook (4.27, 74)
Oakland: Dan Haren (3.79, 100)

One of the great unnoticed stories in baseball this season has been the resurgence of Frank Thomas. The Big Hurt has not only stayed healthy;  he's also hitting .280/.390/.570, providing an otherwise anemic Athletics (Nick Swisher is the only other hitter with an OPS above .800) lineup with a true masher.

Also of interest tonight: the Tigers and White Sox face off in Chicago (8:05).
