OAKLAND (KCBS)—While the Oakland A’s fan’s optimism was raised after Tuesday night’s win over the Detroit Tigers at the O.co Coliseum, dozens of them were feeling down in the dumps after confusion over tickets sales left them out in the cold.

That’s because when they arrived the gate, they found out that they had mistakenly bought tickets for Game 5 of the series.

KCBS’ Chris Filippi Reports:

Tickets that were labeled number 3, it turns out, are actually for the A’s third home contest—not the third game of the series counting the two earlier games in Detroit.

“People obviously mis-saw game number 3 so they assumed this was game number 3,” Ken Pries, the A’s executive vice president, said.

Unfortunately for frustrated fans, Pries said there was little to be done to accommodate them because the game was already sold out.
