A's vs. Mariners lineups: Matt Chapman, Matt Olson sit for season finale


The A's finish out their regular season against the Mariners with the first "meaningless" game of the season. Oakland clinched a spot in the AL Wild Card Game on Friday night, and secured home-field advantage Saturday for the do-or-die game against the Rays on Oct. 2.

With nothing to play for, manager Bob Melvin will give a rest to a bunch of the regulars, including stars Matt Chapman and Matt Olson. Youngsters Sheldon Neuse, Seth Brown and Skye Bolt all will get the start today behind Tanner Roark on the mound. 

Roark, who owns a 4.50 ERA in nine starts with the A's since coming over at the trade deadline, is in jeopardy of being left out of the A's playoff rotation and is in need of a good start to carry momentum into the postseason.

The Mariners will send righty Justin Dunn to the mound, who owns a 3.86 ERA in three starts this year.

Here are the full lineups for the A's-Mariners game, which will be broadcast on NBC Sports California and the MyTeams app. Coverage begins at 11:30 a.m. PT, with first pitch at Noon.
