A May 19 game between the Oakland Athletics and Detroit Tigers was suspended in the bottom of the seventh inning.
Given Oakland was not set to return to Detroit this season, the game was picked up at that spot in Northern California this past Friday. Oakland ended up coming out on top 7-3 as the “road team.”
It really was one of the oddest things we’ve seen around the Major League Baseball world in some time. Just ask those on hand at Oakland Coliseum for the game.
Unfortunately for the Tigers, their home game against the New York Yankees on Wednesday was postponed due to rain. It will be played as part of the doubleheader Thursday.
The A’s wasted no time trolling their counterparts after the announcement was made.
That’s just an amazing rim shot right there from the A’s social media team. The Tigers also responded in kind.
Let’s just hope for everyone involved that the space-time continuum doesn’t rip once again before the MLB season concludes.
