TWINS 5, ATHLETICS 1
Oakland will have to take its bubbly on the road. Kyle Gibson (9-13) allowed one run over 7 1/3 innings and Jake Cave hit a two-run homer for Minnesota, which prevented the Athletics from clinching an AL wild-card berth in their last regular-season home game.
Oakland leads Tampa Bay by 7+ games and needs one win or a Rays loss to clinch its first playoff berth in four years.
Trevor Cahill (6-4) gave up five runs – three earned – and five hits in 3 1/3 innings.
