A’s Playoff Game Forces 11:35 P.M. Start For Raiders Sunday

Raiders_Sio_Moore_2013An Oakland A’s baseball playoff game at O.co Coliseum has forced the Oakland Raiders to delay their game against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday to 11:35 p.m. ET, rather than the originally scheduled 4:25 p.m. ET.

The game’s television broadcast will also change to NFL Network instead of CBS.

The A’s host the Detroit Tigers in Game 2 of their American League Division Series on Saturday night, with a first pitch of 9:07 p.m. ET. Field crews need enough time to convert the playing surface from a baseball diamond to a football field and to get the appropriate stands in place in time to pass safety inspections.
