PROGRAMMING NOTE: A's Pregame Live begins at 6:30 on CSN California, followed by A's-Twins at 7:05, with A's Postgame Live immediately after the final out.

The A's trail the Rangers by five games in the AL West, and trail the Orioles by a half-game in the Wild Card chase.

With the Rangers and Orioles opening a three-game series in Texas Monday night the A's will gain ground on one of the two teams should they take care of business against the Twins.

Minnesota has lost five in a row and nine of their last 10, while the A's enter on a four-game winning streak.
