A's hone in on securing playoff spot against Twins

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Oakland Athletics can clinch their first playoff spot since 2014 when they complete a three-game series against the Minnesota Twins on Sunday afternoon.

The A's (94-61) have consecutive walk-off wins over the Twins to open the series and lowered their magic number to be assured of at least a wild-card spot in the playoffs to one.

Either an A's win on Sunday or a loss by the Tampa Bay Rays (86-68) earlier in the day would give Oakland fans reason to celebrate in the club's home finale.
