AL - fight for 2nd

Post by bmarkley » Fri Jan 26, 2018 2:55 pm

It appears the final series of the season for Oakland and Seattle will determine who makes the playoffs. Seattle is on fire riding an incredible 12 game winning streak, and has a 2 game lead over Oakland. The Athletics held the 2nd place spot for quite a while, but Seattle's streak led to them overtaking the Oakland club. The last time these teams faced off was in Seattle where Seattle swept the 3 game series. Oakland looks to return the favor in order to keep their season alive and make it to the playoffs.

Tidbit: Oakland has made the playoffs 14 out of the past 15 seasons (1958 only season to not make it).


**Update**
Oakland took game one.

It was definitely a crazy finish to the season. Even though I had that two game lead, it felt like an uphill battle with those pitchers you had going.

Wow, just checked in. I can’t believe we swept to make the playoffs. I thought for sure you would win ast least 1 game, this I’m just now checking in.

Sorry Piper, we’ve had some good battles over the past few seasons.
