OAKLAND -- The first scheduled baseball game of 2014 at Coliseum brought back memories of 2013 -– for the wrong reasons.

As rain poured Saturday in advance of the A’s exhibition finale against the Giants, plumbing issues once again caused a sewage problem in the home clubhouse.

Third-base coach Mike Gallego walked around capturing video footage of water backing up in the coaches’ showers and toilets.

“Back in Oakland? Sewage problems in clubhouse!! Yep. We are BACK BABAY!” outfielder Josh Reddick tweeted.
