Today was the first baseball game of the trip, with the A’s hosting the Dodgers split squad. After allowing the Dodgers to put up four runs in the second, they came back and scored nine in the third. They wanted to coast home, but the Dodgers put up four runs in the ninth to bring it to 10-8 before the game ended. I ate a footlong hot dog with kraut, onions and peppers. As my mustache grows, I have to relearn how to eat certain things, and dogs are one of those things.
