Sports round-up for April 9: A’s win over Angels is eclipsed by tragic death of pitcher; San Jose desperately wants A’s for themselves, and Comcast delivers spotty coverage (shocking we know).


Only hours after Wednesday night’s game against the A’s, L.A. Angels’ rookie pitcher Nick Adenhart and two others are killed in a hit and run in Fullerton. CBS5 AP (don’t sue us!) via Chron

A’s beat Angels 6-4 CBS5

Brewers beat Giants 4-2 CBS5

Warriors lose to Timberwolves 97-105 CBS5

San Jose really wants A’s, A’s really want San Jose, but Giants’ territory rights in Santa Clara County create sporty love triangle. People start throwing around words like “self-determination.” CBS5
