OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Oakland Athletics take a step up in class when they attempt to improve upon their four-game winning streak Friday night in the opener of a three-game series against the Boston Red Sox.

The A's will send staff ace Kendall Graveman (0-3, 9.87 ERA) in search of his first win of the season against Red Sox left-hander Drew Pomeranz, who is expected to be activated off the disabled list in time to make his first start of 2018.

Oakland used a "Free Baseball" promotion to attract more fans to the ballpark, then thrilled them with a three-game sweep of the Chicago White Sox earlier this week. The A's scored at least eight runs in all three wins of the fan-friendly series.
