Photos: Ports vs. River Cats 4/8

The future A's were playing... well... the near future A's. The Ports actually won 3-2 in a 7-inning exhibition contest where innings ended randomly.

Here are some of the shots I got last night. The entire album is here. Let me know if that doesn't work, I'll upload them to Flickr when I get home tonight.

It probably goes without saying, but please, ask me first if you want to use these pictures.
