Extras

So much for my early morning nap. The A’s and Red Sox plug on into extra innings in the opener. First time the A’s have gone extras in the opener since 1987, when they lost in 10 innings at Minnesota. That portended an 0-5 start in a season that eventually ended 81-81.

The A’s would like to avoid the former this time, but the latter would sure qualify as a success.
