OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Coco Crisp hit a three-run homer, Daric Barton and Jed Lowrie each had a solo shot and the Oakland Athletics wrapped up their second straight AL West title while overpowering the Minnesota Twins 11-7 Sunday.
The A's clinched their 16th division crown and 25th postseason appearance when Texas lost 4-0 at Kansas City earlier.
Sonny Gray (4-3) gave up four runs and seven hits in five innings. The A's scored six runs in the second inning and one in each of the next five to set the stage for their own celebration.
Evan Scribner struck out Josmil Pinto swinging for the final out. The A's sprinted from the dugout in celebration, jumping around in their gold uniforms to turn the infield into a blur.
