It's Hammer Time for Angels and catcher Bobby Wilson
Right fielder Torii Hunter, who played both games of Saturday's doubleheader, said his legs felt "soggy," so he will start Sunday at designated hitter, with Vernon Wells moving from left field to right and Howie Kendrick moving from second base to left field.
It's '80s weekend in the Oakland Coliseum, and MC Hammer, a former A's front-office employee and an Oakland native, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch. It's also MC Hammer bobblehead day. The Angels will be wearing throwback uniforms from that unique fashion era, but some of the pants weren't fitting too well.
"I asked for Capri style," catcher Hank Conger said, looking at pants that stopped at midcalf.
The Athletics lineup: 2B Jemile Weeks, CF Coco Crisp, LF Josh Willingham, DH Hideki Matsui, 3B Scott Sizemore, RF David DeJesus, 1B Conor Jackson, C Kurt Suzuki, SS Cliff Pennington, P Gio Gonzalez.
