Sensation in Oakland: 6,686 fans witness a stunner

Athletics Rally to force a tie vs. Rockies in the 9th, the 10th, again in the 11th ; then win 10-9, on bases-loaded walk-off ....(wait for it)...WALK!


In a game at the faded, cavernous, nearly empty Oakland Coliseum last Thursday, the A's rallied three times to tie and then beat the Rockies, 10-9, in 11 innings. A's PH Daz Cameron tied it 4-4 in the bottom of the 9th with a HR to left; 2B Zack Gelof followed in the 10th with an RBI single to tie it again, 5-5, and after Colorado scored 4 in the top of the 11th to take a 9-5 lead, the A's tied it for the third consecutive inning on an RBI double, an RBI single, and a 2-run HR by CF JJ Bleday. Then, after loading the bases with 2 outs on an intentional walk to A's C Kyle McCann, Rockies reliever Peter Lambert unintentionally walked PH Tyler Soderstrom, seen above taking first as his teammates exult in the background, to force in the winning run.
