A's celebrate clinching AL West ... with a hose
The Oakland A's finally claimed sole possession of the AL West with a 12-5 win over the Rangers on Wednesday. It only took them 162 games to do it.
After piling on top of each other in celebration after the game, the A's took a victory lap around the Coliseum and sprayed the crowd with champagne -- and even a water hose. Once they got to the clubhouse, the team celebrated for the second time in three days.
Billy Beane even got pied by Josh Reddick!
