White Sox’s Elvis Andros meets A

Oakland Athletics will have the opportunity to host Elvis Andros for the first time as a member of Chicago White Sox When the clubs duel in a series of four matches begins Thursday night.

The teams will meet for their second and final series of the season, as the White Sox had taken two out of three at home at the end of July.

Andrus was Oakland’s short starting point in the previous series, going 4 for 12 with double and Homer. The long ball came in a 7-3 win in the opening game. Two days later, he struck in both of his rackets against right-handed Dylan Cease, the White Sox’s scheduled start on Thursday, during Chicago’s 4-1 win.

After Andrus played in 252 games over two seasons for the organization, the first team released him in August. He was kidnapped two days later by the White Sox.

The 34-year-old hit 0.237 for Oakland this season but hits 0.284 for Chicago.

The players have taken the first step to make room for the player they hope will be their shortest spot in the future, Nick Allen. The 23-year-old is only 0.206 so far.

The Oakland lineup did little damage against Cease the first time, when he set the A’s in one round and four strokes in six innings. The athletics race came via Homer Ramon Laureano.

Stop (13-6, 2.13 ERA) never jumped in Auckland. He has a lifetime record of 1-0 and 3.00 ERA in two exchanges versus an A.

The American League Cy Young Award nominee comes out with a win over the Minnesota Twins on Saturday as the no-hitter lost with two naysayers in the ninth inning. He settled on one hitter with two runs and seven hits. It was the first nine-game layoff in his career.

Team A (50-87) got a big dose of good shooting in two home games by the Atlanta Braves to start the week, when they had to deal with Kyle Wright and Spencer Strider.

Oakland coach Mark Kotsai patted his men on the back after the two defeats, especially Wednesday’s game, when the first player trailed 3-2 to advance to seventh before falling 7-3.

“We played this team really well,” he said of the world champions. “They are one of the best teams we’ve faced.”

Team A will get another chance to play the spoiler against the White Sox (69-68), who came out with a 2-1 win over their teammate in the playoff, the Seattle Mariners. Chicago recorded a 9-6 victory on the roads on Wednesday afternoon.

Chicago have gone 6-3 since head coach Tony La Russa left the team for medical reasons last week. There has been no announcement of his condition or potential return, meaning he could miss the chance to come home to a place where he led the A’s to three consecutive World Championships from 1988-90 and the World Championships in 1989.

“We have to do it for him,” declared Miguel Cairo, who went from the bench coach to run things for La Rosa, 77. “He cares about this team. He really loves the Chicago White Sox. We have to do that for him.”

JB Sears left (5-1, 2.37) is looking to pause the Chicago chase, which was acquired by the New York Yankees a day after Team A left Chicago.

The novice has never faced Chicago. The only current member of the White Sox to have faced him in the major leagues is Andrus, who was knocked out twice in an A-Yankees match on June 28.

Sears is 2-1 with a 2.63 ERA in five starts since joining the A.
