SEATTLE (AP) — The Oakland Athletics clinched their first playoff berth in four years Monday night http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , earning at least an American League wild card when the Tampa Bay Rays lost to the New York Yankees.Following three straight last-place finishes in the AL West, the A’s found out just a couple of minutes after the first pitch of their game against Seattle that they are in the postseason for the first time since 2014.Tampa Bay’s 4-1 loss to the Yankees eliminated the Rays from playoff contention. Oakland still has an outside shot at overtaking Houston for the division title, but is more likely headed toward a wild-card matchup with the Yankees.The A’s could still host that game. They beat the Mariners 7-3 to remain 1½ games behind the Yankees for the top wild card.Few people imagined the A’s could make the playoffs this season, a young team with few proven stars after finishing 75-87 a year ago. Oakland won only 68 games in 2015 and 69 in 2016.The A’s have the third-lowest payroll among the 30 major league clubs at $78 million for their 40-man roster, ahead of only the White Sox and Rays.Oakland was 34-36 and 11 games behind Seattle in the wild-card race on June 15. The A’s have gone 61-26 since then.“We’ve had some younger players mature and become, for me http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , stars,” manager Bob Melvin said Monday. “I think the two guys on the corners (third baseman Matt Chapman and first baseman Matt Olson) should win Gold Gloves.“Our defense is night-and-day to what it was and it’s gotten better as the year’s gone along. We’ve gone from last year being one of the worst defenses in the league to now one of the best. Our bullpen has been a strength for us all year. We don’t just rely on one facet. We seem to be able to win in different ways.”Oakland designated hitter Khris Davis leads the majors with a career-high 46 home runs and has 120 RBIs. Davis has hit at least 40 homers and driven in more than 100 runs in each of this three seasons with the Athletics.Blake Treinen is 9-2 and one of the top closers in baseball this season with 37 saves and a 0.80 ERA, the lowest of all major league relievers with at least 75 innings pitched. Opponents have a .091 batting average against him with runners in scoring position.“It’s amazing,” Melvin said. “Not only is he doing it closing games, he’s doing it in games when we’re tied and he’s pitching two innings at times. The numbers are absolutely fantastic. I don’t know that I’ve seen numbers like that from any closer in quite some time. He’s meant a lot to this team.”The A’s are the only team in the majors with an undefeated record this season when leading after seven innings (68-0). They have the best record in one-run games at 31-13.Oakland made key moves to bolster the pitching staff via trades over the summer by adding veteran relievers Jeurys Familia and Fernando Rodney and starter Mike Fiers, who is 5-1 with a 2.90 ERA since joining the Athletics.The A’s overcame losing key starters from their rotation down the stretch. That included left-hander Sean Manaea Roberto Perez Jersey , who pitched a no-hitter on April 21 against Boston and is now done for the year recovering from arthroscopic shoulder surgery that took place this past week.The Athletics are making their fourth playoff appearance in the last seven seasons (all under Melvin) and their 27th postseason appearance all-time. The A’s lost at Kansas City 9-8 in 12 innings in the 2014 wild-card game, the last time Oakland reached the postseason.The last time the A’s reached the World Series was 1990, losing in four games to the Cincinnati Reds. Oakland won the 1989 World Series (which took place during the Bay Area earthquake) in four straight games over the San Francisco Giants. BALTIMORE — Toronto Blue Jays rookie Thomas Pannone was dazzling in his first major league start against the Baltimore Orioles.Now, he will look to duplicate that success when he takes the mound at Camden Yards for the second game of the series Tuesday night.The Blue Jays fell to the Orioles 7-0 in the opener Monday night. It was just the second time in 14 meetings Baltimore came away with a victory against its AL East rival.Article continues below ...Toronto designated hitter Kendrys Morales went 0 for 3 with a walk and fell short in his bid to become the fourth player in history to homer in eight consecutive games.Nonetheless, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons marveled at Morales’ performance.“It’s a surprise he still gets pitches to hit,” Gibbons said. “I don’t think any of us can comprehend how hard it is to do. It really couldn’t happen to a better guy.”Pannone (1-0 Eddie Robinson Jersey , 1.59 ERA) has shown flashes that he could be a key part of the franchise’s future. In his previous start against the Orioles, he threw seven scoreless innings with just one hit in a 6-0 victory. He is looking to have the same success against the Orioles, who did not manage a hit against him until the seventh inning.Pannone became the fifth player in MLB history to allow one hit or fewer and two walks or fewer in seven or more shutout innings in his first big league start, according to Elias Sports Bureau.“I was a little bit nervous when I woke up, but as I came here and prepared for the game, I settled in really well http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey ,” Pannone said after his debut. “I knew the whole game I hadn’t given up a hit yet. I think I always know as the game is going on, but I’d say it was pretty obvious to me in like the sixth inning that I had made it through at least five without giving up a hit.”Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson will begin his rehab assignment Tuesday for Class-A Dunedin, which is three days before the trade deadlineThe Orioles (38-94) snapped an eight-game losing streak. Baltimore also went 0-10 at Rogers Centre. The team has already traded several key veterans as the franchise begins a full-scale rebuild.Baltimore’s starter on Tuesday will be Josh Rogers, who was acquired from the Yankees for closer Zach Britton and is 2-1 with a 2.08 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in five starts for Triple-A Norfolk.Manager Buck Showalter said several younger have an opportunity to show they can be part of a long-range plan. The Orioles also might not be finished making deals.“We traded some really good players, so there’s been a lot of movement,” Showalter said. “I’ve got my hands full here. But there’s a lot of things I’m sure are going on and close or not close. It doesn’t help anybody to know all that stuff’s a good opportunity to evaluate and we’ve got another month or so of it.“I can’t really handicap between now and the end of the month. I know for our guys who are here who might be involved in that Mike Napoli Jersey , personally I’d love to see them, if they’re going to be traded, get there before the 1st so at least they’re eligible for the postseason. But that doesn’t mean somebody still won’t take them to try to get there. We traded some really good playersOrioles rookie center fielder Cedric Mullins was back in the lineup Monday after missing the previous game with a hip injury.
