What an awesome night for A's rookie James Kaprielian. Former first round pick of the Yankees, sent to Oakland in the Sonny Gray deal making his first career start in Fenway. Couldn't pick a better place to have your first start if you ask me. Had his family and friends fly in to Boston for the game as well, that includes his dad who was going NUTS in the stands watching his son.

Guy wears his heart on his sleeve and how could you blame him? James has been through a ton on his way to the bump, injuries, the loss of his mother to breast cancer, you know his dad was going to celebrate every pitch, and he did.
