After rain washed out Thursday's scheduled series opener Max Scharping Jersey , the Oakland Athletics and Chicago White Sox will play a day-night doubleheader on Friday at Guaranteed Rate Field to kick off a four-game series.

The A's will go for their season-high fifth win in a row when they finally take the field on Chicago's South Side.

Oakland (38-36) has won four straight games on four occasions this season, including its current stretch, but has yet to make it five. The A's have outscored opponents 28-15 during this week's streak, which includes two wins apiece against the Los Angeles Angels and San Diego Padres.

A's hitters slugged five homers in a 12-4 rout of the Padres on Wednesday. The team already has four players with double-digit blasts including Khris Davis (20), Matt Olson (15), Jed Lowrie (11) and the injured Matt Chapman (10).

"We definitely have some power," A's manager Bob Melvin told the A's official website. "That's one of the strengths of the team."

As Oakland is riding a hot streak, Chicago (24-49) is mired in a seven-game losing streak. A loss in the series opener would give the White Sox their worst skid of the season, which is saying something considering the club's ugly record.

White Sox manager Rick Renteria's club has been swept in its last two series, against the Detroit Tigers and Cleveland Indians. In Wednesday's series finale, Chicago managed only two hits in a 12-0 shutout loss to the Indians.

"It's tough Brian Burns Jersey , but instead of getting frustrated, we have to keep working, use that feeling to work harder," White Sox second baseman Yoan Moncada told the team's official website. "There are still plenty of games to play, and we can improve. We can keep getting better, and if it is not this year, then next year. But definitely the games we have this year, we have a chance to improve."

The White Sox will turn to right-hander James Shields (2-8, 4.63 ERA) in the first game of the twin bill. The 36-year-old has pitched at least six innings in 11 consecutive starts as part of a bounce-back season atop the club's rotation.

In his career against Oakland, Shields is 6-7 with a 4.86 ERA in 19 games (18 starts). He came in as a reliever in the 14th inning of a game against Oakland in April this season, and gave up two hits http://www.pantherscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-greg-little-jersey , two walks and the game-winning run in two-thirds of an inning.

The A's will start the doubleheader with left-hander Sean Manaea (6-6, 3.56 ERA), who grew up in Northwest Indiana, not far from Chicago. The 26-year-old is off to a good start this season with 19 walks and 68 strikeouts in 93 2/3 innings.

Manaea has never faced the White Sox in his career.

In the nightcap, White Sox right-hander Lucas Giolito (4-7, 7.19 ERA) will look to improve in his 15th start of the season. The former first-round pick of the Washington Nationals (No. 16 overall in 2012) has terrific potential but has been unable to produce consistent results in his first full season in Chicago.

Poor command has plagued Giolito, who has 45 walks in 71 1/3 innings. He also has hit 10 batters, which is tied for most in the majors along with Cole Hamels of the Texas Rangers and Carlos Martinez of the St. Louis Cardinals.

This will mark the 23-year-old's first career appearance against Oakland.

For the A's, right-hander Chris Bassitt (0-2, 2.45 ERA) will make his third start of the season in the nightcap. The 29-year-old is seeking his first victory since Aug. 4, 2015 Will Grier Jersey , against the Baltimore Orioles.

Bassitt is quite familiar with the White Sox, who drafted him in the 16th round in 2011 and developed him in the minors. He went 1-1 with a 3.94 ERA in six appearances (five starts) as a rookie in Chicago in 2014.

Bassitt has faced the White Sox once in his career, giving up eight hits and four runs in 5 1/3 innings on April 5, 2016. He did not get a decision in Chicago's 5-4 victory.

On Dec. 9, 2014, the White Sox shipped Bassitt, Marcus Semien, Josh Phegley and minor leaguer Rangel Ravelo to Oakland for Jeff Samardzija and Michael Ynoa. The trade did not pan out as hoped for Chicago, which retained Samardzija for one underwhelming season before he signed as a free agent with the San Francisco Giants.

This is the first series of the season between the teams. Last year, Oakland won the season series 5-1.

For the second time this month, free agent wide receiver Michael Crabtree is closing in on a deal with the Arizona Cardinals.According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network http://www.pantherscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-christian-miller-jersey , Crabtree and the Cardinals are nearing a deal to bring the wide receiver back to the NFC West.The Cardinals had expected to sign Crabtree earlier this month after a positive workout with the team. Instead, Crabtree didn't settle for the terms offered to him at the time and elected to remain unsigned. Whatever hurdles were in the way to keep Crabtree from agreeing to a deal at the start of the month now appear to have been cleared.The interest in Crabtree makes sense. He played in Mike Leach's Air Raid system at Texas Tech a few years after Kliff Kingsbury's was the quarterback at the school. He's an NFL veteran that has familiarity with the system Kingsbury has brought to Arizona and helps add some experience to a wide receiver group lacking it outside of Larry Fitzgerald.Crabtree, 31, played all 16 games for the Baltimore Ravens last season. He made 54 catches for 607 yards and two touchdowns. It was his fewest receptions, yards and touchdowns since he played only five games for the San Francisco 49ers in 2013.The 10th overall choice in 2009, Crabtree played six seasons with the 49ers before going across the Bay to Oakland for three seasons.He has 633 career catches for 7,477 yards and 54 touchdowns.The Cardinals announced an agreement with Crabtree on a one-year deal.
