The one where the A’s get a hit

Game Thread #1

Well, I’m not going to lie.

Down 3-0, still in the middle of the night, thanks to the home-run-friendly Tokyo Dome, watching our woefully under-Spring Training’ed starting pitching staff (shaky at best at full-strength), in front of a Mariners’ home crowd in a technical A’s home game; we aren’t quite enjoying baseball like we did all summer long in 2018.

Things look bleak for our plucky heroes, who have yet to record a hit in the game, but it’s the bottom of the third; the night is young, and they have the last at-bat.
