Athletics defeat Yankees 4-3
Headed back to O.co Coliseum for the matchup between the New York Yankees and the Oakland Athletics.
I was suuuuper excited to photograph this game. For A-Rod? Nope. For Jeter? Nope. For dog day!! There were 700+ dogs at the ballpark. Though I love what I call the dog parade when neighbors pass by my house with their dogs, this was a real dog parade around the ballpark with SO many cute dogs! AMAZING!
Oh... and then there was a pretty exciting baseball game with a couple superstars.
The game started out with some confusion on a dropped ball play where the call ended up as Derek Jeter forced out at third as Alex Rodriguez was pushed to second base. But for a moment, it looked like nobody knew what was going on!
After Jemille Weeks got on base and then stole third, Yoenis Cespedes didn't want to leave him out there, and hit a home run to bat em both in.
A's came up with another two runs when Weeks and Coco Crisp were batted in.
But Yankees weren't going to be blanked and scored 2 runs of their own. And against the Yankees 4-2 is hardly a lead.
In the ninth, Nick Swisher hit a home run off of Ryan Cook, and I thought uh ohhhh.
But Cook was able to finish the inning for a 4-3 win over the Yankees!
A great win for the Athletics... even Brandon Inge was left hanging on the high five intended for Brandon Moss ;-)
