A's Vs. Rays Lineups: Beau Taylor Starts Behind Plate for Brett Anderson

The A's are coming off a win in Tampa Bay after a 4-3 victory over the Rays on Wednesday thanks to a strong outing from Mike Fiers and back-to-back bombs by Matt Olson and Khris Davis.

The team hopes to continue that winning vibe during the series finale before the boys head home to Oakland and begin a 10-game homestand.

Brett Anderson will get starting honors for the A's and is boasting a 3.98 ERA this season and has earned three runs or fewer in each of his past four starts.

Yonny Chirinos will start for the Rays and across 43 2/3 frames, he's 4-2 with a 2.27 ERA -- and the Rays are 5-2 in the seven starts by Chirinos. Beau Taylor will start behind the plate.
