It’s starting to look a lot like the Oakland Athletics’ year. One day after coming back from a five-run ninth-inning deficit against the San Francisco Giants to win in 10 innings, the A’s were back at it.
Down 6-3 heading into the ninth inning at Oracle Park, Oakland ended up scoring four runs to take the game from their cross-bay rivals.
It started with a Sean Murphy solo blast before Mark Canha hit a bomb of a three-run homer to give Oakland the lead.
This is just insane. While it might not have been the grand slam we saw Friday night in San Francisco, it’s just as important for the A’s.
They now move to an American League-best 15-6 on the season and are a whopping 4.5 games up on both the Houston Astros and Texas Rangers in the AL West.
Needless to say, the Major League Baseball world had its reaction to the A’s latest heroics.
