Rockies vs. A’s

Phoenix Municipal Stadium

So we arrived at Phoenix Municipal about 3:30. We were waiting for the Rockies bus to arrive which did not show till about 6. So I grabbed some photos of the outside of the stadium while we waited.

After a ball hit by Jed Lowrie that was called a out at first  for a double was reviewed via replay and over turned for only a out force out at second. This was the first review I have seen in person. The A’s scored a run in the inning.

The A’s scored 4 runs in the 4th inning and here are 3 of them which happened on a Lowrie double. Scoring Nick Punto from 3rd, Coco Crisp from 2nd and Josh Donalson from first. (7-5) A’s after 4 innings. The Rox did score 2 in the 4th on a Tim Wheeler home run.

In the bottom of the 8th there was a second review of a double play. This again at first and the call on the play remained as called on the field.

the Rockies pitching and a few in field mess ups did not help.

So that was it from Phoenix Municipal this was the last night home game for the A’s in this stadium before they move to Hohokam next year.
