A Gray Afternoon

We had a work meeting at the ballpark on Thursday. A large group had a suite at the Oakland Coliseum; with food and alcohol provided. Since I was driving, I only took advantage of the former.

The game was a 5-0 won for the A’s against the lowly Astros (A’s are 12-3 this year against them). First time I have seen the Astros play in the flesh, and first time this year I have been at game where the A’s won.

If you are wondering about the article title; no we did not have an English overcast Summer day. The weather was warm and cloudless. The A’s starting pitcher was making his home debut and his second major league start. He had a great day, pitching eight scoreless innings, issuing just one walk and giving up four hits.
