Liam Hendriks to be A's 'opener' in Wild Card Game on Wednesday
Oakland Athletics pitcher Liam Hendriks will serve as the opener in Wednesday's American League Wild Card Game against the New York Yankees.
The A's are going with a bullpen game as they do not have a real "ace" on their staff. Hendriks has been the opener eight times this season, posting a 2.08 ERA in 8 2/3 innings. Edwin Jackson is the only Oakland starting pitcher on the roster for the Wild Card Game and could take the mound after Hendriks on Wednesday.
Hendriks has a 4.13 ERA and 1.46 WHIP with 22 strikeouts in 24 innings pitched this season.
