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.

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