You hate to see an opposing team celebrate in your house, and such was the case for the Oakland Athletics last night at Safeco Field. Oakland clinched a playoff spot even before playing Seattle as New York knocked off Tampa Bay 4-to-1. Then, following the A’s 7-3 victory, the A’s popped the cork on the champagne in their clubhouse.

Oakland still has a chance to catch Houston for the American League West title, but in the meantime can celebrate their first playoff appearance since 2014…
MARINERS
In last night’s win, Oakland got home runs from Johnathan Lucroy, Jed Lowrie, Khris Davis and Matt Chapman. The Mariners also got home runs from Robinson Cano and Dee Gordon, but didn’t have enough in the tank to win.

Seattle and Oakland play again tonight with Mike Leake facing Brett Anderson at 7:10.
