A's Manager Bob Melvin has posted his lineup for this year's Bay Bridge Series finale at AT&T Park. Oakland looks to sweep the four-game home-and-home series from the Giants, who will send Barry Zito to the hill.  

Adam Rosales returns to shortstop for the A's after Jed Lowrie took over the position on Wednesday. Chris Young will get the start in right field and hit sixth, and Derek Norris is back behind the dish to catch A.J. Griffin after John Jaso's start.  Josh Donaldson will move up a spot and hit cleanup after hitting fifth last night.
