A’s win the AL West on someone else’s walk-off grand slam

Sep 22, 2013, 2:17 PM PDT


The Oakland Athletics are back-to-back American League West champions. The A’s clinched their second consecutive division title after a walk-off grand slam by Royals outfielder Justin Maxwell in the bottom of the 10th inning.


The slam defeated the Rangers 4-0 and mathematically ended their chances at overtaking the A’s. The A’s are currently playing the Minnesota Twins in Oakland. At the conclusion of the game, they will celebrate in a manner that makes this Royals walk-off celebration look tame.


Make sure to check out for Joe Stiglich’s post game reports and keep it tuned into Comcast SportsNet California to see the A’s clubhouse celebration as it happens.
