Wednesday’s lineups, updates

All’s quiet on the A’s front as game time approaches. We may not get this one in without an interruption, as there’s a forecast of possible thunderstorms tonight. It’s very overcast and a little warm — feels like a storm is coming, for what that’s worth.

Scott Hairston (left quad) is out of the lineup for the second straight day, but Bob Geren said he could be used in an emergency. The hope is Hairston can play in tomorrow’s series-closing matinee.
