The West Coast road trip heads up north from Arizona to the Bay Area, as the New York Yankees start a four-game series with the Oakland Athletics tonight at the Oakland Coliseum.

It's the second time these two will meet this season after the A's marched into The Bronx and promptly swept the Bombers in their home dwelling. In turn, the Yanks will hope to have similar or equal results here in an important series for both teams.

Ivan Nova (2-1, 3.70 ERA) will be on the bump for the Yankees, while Kendall Graveman (1-5, 5.84 ERA) will look to keep the winning ways for the A's going.

Here's to a hot start in the Bay Area.
