Shoutout: Yesterday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner of Red Sox-Athletics, the final score, and the first player to hit a home run. Oakland won 4-1, and Matt Olson blasted the game’s only dinger.

Subscriber Tim Maher (@glenayrfarm) had the Athletics winning and was closest to the final score. No one predicted Olson as the first to homer. Nice effort, Tim!

Keep the picks coming, everyone!
