Worth noting

• The A's Sunday appearance on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball against the Braves will be their first since Aug. 17, 2006. They'll be right back on the network the following Sunday, too, in a home matchup with the Angels, marking their first Sunday Night Baseball showing in Oakland since Aug. 24, 2005.
