Yankees Vs. A's Lineups: Oakland Looks to Continue Dominance of Lefties

OAKLAND -- The A's look to continue their success against left-handed pitching when they face Yankees southpaw J.A. Happ on Wednesday night at the Coliseum.

The Green and Gold are 21-10 against left-handed starters this season with an .820 OPS, currently the best mark in Oakland history. A's manager Bob Melvin has loaded up his lineup with right-handed bats, with only Matt Olson swinging from the left side.

Chad Pinder, Jurickson Profar and Josh Phegley all return to the lineup to give Oakland three more righties. Pinder will bat fifth, with Profar and Phegley hitting eight and ninth, respectively.

Happ has struggled this season for New York, going 10-7 with a 5.40 ERA and 1.37 WHIP in 24 starts. The 36-year-old has enjoyed success against Oakland, however, going 4-1 with a 3.47 ERA in 11 career outings, including nine starts.
