The A's are the only team to beat the Diamondbacks this spring. Can we get revenge on them at Hohokam this afternoon?

Oakland beat Arizona 7-2 on Friday, so we'll be hoping for better on the road version of the game. Cahill makes his second start of spring, and will be looking to build on a successful first outing where he threw a pair of scoreless innings. Bradley follows him to the mound, and exactly the same goes for him. Bit of a B-lineup, with four position players who likely won't make the Opening Day roster. Though Nick Piecoro reports that Oscar Hernandez has "turned heads" in training camp, particularly his pitch-framing skills. The stats indicate the departed Miguel Montero was an expert there, so be nice to have that ability still around.

If only we could combine Hernandez's defensive skills with Peter O'Brien's bat... ASU need to get on that gene-splicing technology, stat. Anyway, no radio today, so we'll be stuck with buggy Gameday as far as following the game is concerned.
