A's Vs. Rays Lineups: Mike Fiers Gets Ball for Oakland in Saturday Matinee

Friday was a bad day all around for the A's.

First, Oakland's best starting pitcher, Frankie Montas, was suspended 80 games for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy. Then, the A's four-game winning streak was snapped as the Rays picked up a 5-3 win.

The A's will look to get back in the win column Saturday afternoon at the Coliseum when they send right-hander Mike Fiers to the mound.

The Rays will counter with righty Yonny Chirinos.
