    Oakland Athletics fans excited for the season, but not very optimistic

    OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- An exciting night in Oakland as the Athletics opened up the regular season by beating the Los Angeles Angels 2-1 . But it's been an offseason full of uncertainty as the team wants a new stadium and could move out of the Bay Area to get one. Before the game we spoke with fans. "Go A's! Lets get this win!" yelled one fan. Opening night at the Coliseum for the Oakland Athletics and fans were tailgating early. "So are you excited about the A's here or what?" we asked lifetime Athletics fan Carlos Curiel.

    Muller delivers, A's spoil Ohtani gem on Opening Night

    As if the immense pressure of being the Opening Night starter wasn't enough, Kyle Muller had to do it as a rookie. Two of the first three batters he had to face are arguably the first and second best players in the world: Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani. After striking out Taylor Ward to start the ballgame, Muller made quick work of Trout in what should've been a 3-pitch strikeout but home plate umpire Adrian Johnson wasn't having it. No problem Muller and his buddy from the Sean Murphy trade, Esteury Ruiz, who laid out for a beautiful “chef's kiss” diving catch in center field.

    Shohei Ohtani strikes out 10 in Angels' opening loss to A's

    Shohei Ohtani's Pitchcom machine failed him for a stretch in the first inning, so he had to improvise with a rookie catcher. "It was tough because you want to go a different pitch, but you don't have enough fingers," O'Hoppe said in reference to Ohtani's extensive repertoire. Ohtani struck out 10 over six scoreless innings in his season debut coming off the World Baseball Classic title before Oakland capitalized once he exited, with Aledmys Díaz rallying the Athletics on a tiebreaking single in the eighth for a 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday night. "We got a lot of guys on base and in scoring position, we just lacked that one big hit," Ohtani said through interpreter Ippei Mizuhara.
