The Oakland Athletics clobbered the Minnesota Twins 11-0 on Friday, dropping their magic number to clinch the American League West to two. The A’s win combined with the Rangers 2-1 loss to the Royals cut the magic number in half.

The A’s can now clinch a playoff berth as early as Saturday. Make sure to check out for Joe Stiglich’s post game reports.
