After a 5-1 victory on Friday night, the A's sit 10 games above .500.

It's the second installment of a three-game series as the A's host the Chicago White Sox at RingCentral Coliseum on Saturday. (You forgot it was named that too, didn't you?)

After Friday night's 5-1 win over the Sox, the A's sit rather pretty at 10 games above the .500 mark and have now won 15 of their last 20 games, and are a half-game behind the Cleveland Indians in the Wild Card standings.

Chris Bassitt will take the mound against Dylan Covey in game two of the series.

Bassitt is coming off a rough start against the Mariners on July 6 when he gave up six runs and seven hits over 4 1/3 frames. It'll be a small reunion for the 30-year-old who was drafted by the White Sox in 2011.

Covey comes back to the hill after being sidelined since June 5 with soreness in his throwing shoulder. 

A's catcher Chris Herrmann will get the start behind the plate giving Josh Phegley a day off. And Jurickson Profar sits with Franklin Barreto getting starting responsibilities at second base.
