Oakland A's vs. Detroit Tigers

When: Thu., April 14, 7:05 p.m., Fri., April 15, 7:05 p.m., Sat., April 16, 6:05 p.m. and Sun., April 17, 1:05 p.m. 2011

The season certainly hasn't gotten off to the spirited start that was expected for the Green and Gold. A first-place prediction has been undermined by a last-place reality. But that's what a three-city, nine-game road trip will do for you. Maybe the worm will turn now that the Oakland A's finally have a homestand. Starting Thursday, April 14, and continuing through Wednesday, April 20, the Athletics host the Detroit Tigers for four and the Boston Red Sox for a pair. The new-look Oakland team may respond better to home cooking, and fans will at least stay warm, as on Thursday the hosts give away free hot dogs, and on Friday, fleece blankets to the first 15,000 fans. Thu.-Fri., Tue. 7:05 p.m.; Sat. 6:05 p.m.; Sun. 1:05 p.m.; Wed. 12:30 p.m. All games at the Oakland Coliseum (7000 Coliseum Way, Oakland). $8-$50. 877-493-2255 or OaklandAthletics.com
