A's cut magic number to 1 with another walk-off win

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Stephen Piscotty scored on Trevor Hildenberger's wild pitch in the ninth inning, and the Oakland Athletics cut their magic number to clinch a playoff berth to one with their second straight walk-off win over the Minnesota Twins, 3-2 on Saturday night.

Marcus Semien homered for Oakland, which opened a 7 1/2-game lead over Tampa Bay for the AL's second wild card. The A's trail AL West-leading Houston by 3 1/2 games and are 1 1/2 games behind the New York Yankees, who clinched the first wild card earlier Saturday.

Oakland won Friday on Khris Davis' 10th-inning homer and took the first two games of the series against the Twins despite going hitless in 14 at-bats with runners in scoring position, including 10 on Saturday.
