OAKLAND (KRON) — Just a few hours ago, news broke that the Oakland Athletics were headed to the playoffs.
And now — the A’s are steps away from playing the wild-card game on their own turf.
Oakland is shifting away from traveling to Tampa Bay following the Rays’ 4-1 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday.
However, it’s not a done deal.
Tampa Bay can still host the wild-card game if the A’s lose their final two games against the Mariners and the Rays beat the Blue Jays on Sunday.
There’s a lot of “ifs” involved, but if all pulls through — October ball will be expected in Oakland.
