After allowing the Nationals to draw level in this weekend series on Saturday, the Oakland A's will look to earn a victory and capture their third straight series victory of the young 2024 season this afternoon.

The A's currently sit at 6-9 and in 4th place in the AL West, two games behind the first place Rangers. The Nationals are 6-8 and also sit in 4th place in the NL East. Oakland will look to grab a victory before facing off against the St. Louis Cardinals early next week in what will likely prove to be a difficult series.

Probable starting pitchers

  • Alex Wood is set to make the start for the A's this afternoon. He enters today's matchup with an 8.03 ERA on the year and sporting an 0-1 record. He has a more encouraging 4.54 FIP but overall, his three starts have not gone well. The A's Opening Day starter needs to take advantage of the Nationals weak offense this afternoon and get his season back on track.
  • Trevor Williams will take the mound for the Nationals. He's pitched to a 2.61 ERA in his first two starts, notching 7 strikeouts to 5 walks. Williams isn't a bit strikeout pitcher, which is good news for this A's team that struck out 18 times in total last night. Williams will look to improve to 3-0 with a victory this afternoon.
