    OAKLAND, Calif. Louis Williams Jersey . -- Two pitchers hoping to make the most of an otherwise meaningless September clash of fourth- and fifth-place teams will go head-to-head when the Los Angeles Angels and Oakland Athletics wrap up a three-game series Wednesday.Angels right-hander Alex Meyer will be making his second major league start and As righty Jharel Cotton his first in the afternoon affair.Meyer has two advantages of Cotton in the matchup.First off, hell be facing an As team thats been no-hit into the eighth and sixth innings in two of their last three games.Also, Meyer has four games of big-league experience under his belt, even if those outings didnt go well.Pitching at the time for the Minnesota Twins, Meyer made two relief appearances in 2015 and one earlier this season, pitching a total of 3 2/3 innings. He allowed seven runs on seven hits in those outings.Given a shot to start at Houston on May 1, the 26-year-old didnt fare much better, giving up three runs on three hits in 2 2/3 innings. He was charged with the loss in the 6-4 loss.The 6-foot-9 former first-round pick of the Washington Nationals will bring a 14.21 career ERA, fifth highest among all pitchers who have made four or more appearances the last two seasons, into the contest.Meyer will be making his Angels debut. He was acquired on Aug. 1 along with Tuesdays starting pitcher, Ricky Nolasco, from the Minnesota Twins for left-hander Hector Santiago and minor league right-hander Alan Busenitz.This pitcher absolutely has as much upside as any pitcher in the game today, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said of Meyer following his acquisition. He just has to realize some of that potential, turn it into performance.Cotton was one of three pitchers acquired by the As when they dealt right fielder Josh Reddick and left-hander Rich Hill to the Los Angeles Dodgers at the trade deadline.He will be making his major league debut after going 3-1 with a 2.82 ERA in six starts for Nashville, the As Triple-A affiliate.Cotton will be the seventh Oakland pitcher to make his major league debut this season, and second in three days.Right-hander Raul Alcantaras turn in the spotlight turned quickly into a complete disaster in the series opener Monday. He hit three of the first eight batters he faced and lasted only three innings, allowing five runs on five hits in a 10-7 loss.Cotton attended Tuesdays 3-2, come-from-behind win over the Angels even though he technically hadnt been placed on the active roster.This is awesome. Im glad Im here, he told reporters before the game. Im excited. Just have to go out there and pitch and have a good time with my teammates.Cotton can only hope his big day turns out to be as special as fellow rookie Joey Wendles was Tuesday.Wendle recorded his first game-winning RBI, capping a three-run rally that produced the 3-2 win.Wendle recorded his first major league hit, first major league RBI and first major league game-winning hit all within the first six days of the month.

But now that hes in the NHL, the Calgary Flames centre showed big improvement in that department by scoring the winner in the eighth round of a 5-4 shootout victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday. . You can watch the game live on TSN at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. The Flyers had won seven of eight before dropping their last two outings on consecutive days over the weekend. Philadelphia was handed a 6-3 loss by the visiting Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday afternoon before dropping a 4-1 decision to the Rangers the following night in New York City. Sydney co-captain Kieren Jack will be hoping to end a tumultuous week by getting a win against the club he has had the lowest success rate against during his distinguished AFL career.The classy midfielder earned widespread praise on Wednesday for the way he conducted himself in a media conference where all the early questions were about a feud with his parents.Jack had the option of not doing the presser, but once again demonstrated the professionalism which has been a hallmark of his career.Typically all his focus was on attaining an important win against Geelong at Simonds Stadium on Friday rather than his family issue or the fact he would be making his 200th AFL appearance this week.Geelong away however, is about as tough a gig as you can get in the AFL.Jack at least has experienced one win there, but has tasted defeat in his other six visits to the Cattery.Overall he has only belted out the club song four times in 14 games against Geelong, the worst winning percentage of all the AFL cclubs he has played against.

Its probably no consolation or of any relevance to him that he had wins in all three of his previous milestone games.An articulate ambassador for his club and code, Jack said any leadership qualities he possessed were developed through experience, or or from learning from older players, rather than being innate.He stressed it would be up to the Swans leaders to stand up and prevent any more late glitches like the ones that allowed Richmond and Western Bulldogs to beat them at the death.Its so critical with a couple of minutes to go and youre in front your leaders are the ones that stand up and show the way for the young boys, Jack said.All the leadership players, we put it on ourselves in the big moments to stand up, thats a continual challenge.Sometimes you dont get it right, but you want to put yourself in that moment.
