Oakland hosts Tampa Bay in wild card game


OAKLAND (KRON) – It’s sudden death – a Game 7.

For the second year in a row, the Oakland A’s are in the wild card game.

Only this time, they are playing right here at home.

Tonight they take on the Tampa Bay Rays in a win-or-go-home.

The winner of tonight’s game will take on the Houston Astros on Thursday in Game 1 of the next round.

Taking the mound for the A’s will be arguably their best pitcher – Sean Maanea.

The A’s were solid at home this year with a 52-27 record.

Around 50,000 fans are expected to turn out for this do-or-die game.

First pitch is at 5:09 p.m. and throwing out the first ceremonial pitch is Oakland’s own and former bat boy for the A’s – MC Hammer.
