It’s the ultimate “getaway day.” That’s when a team departs a city after a game. The A’s not only depart a city, they depart a country today. First thing’s first, game 2 of the 2012 Major League Baseball regular season.
The team is checked out of The New Otani, A’s flag waving goodbye.
Following an artistic pregame ceremony…
…and spectacular national anthems…
…it’s time to play ball!
Tonight’s scoreboard inside the Tokyo Dome.
Bartolo Colon has pitched well, but so has Seattle’s Jason Vargas.
The A’s defense has been great, but so has Seattle’s.
A’s coming to bat in the bottom of the 7th inning, down 1-0 on Justin Smoak’s solo home run in the top of the inning.
