A's beat Blue Jays, tie for Wild Card spot | MLB.com – MLB.com

OAKLAND — For those who thought the A’s being swept in Colorado over the weekend was a sign that they were slowing down, the last three days at the Coliseum indicated otherwise, and so do the current standings: They are tied for a playoff spot and here to stay as unexpected contenders in a pennant race.

With an 8-3 victory on Wednesday to complete a sweep of the Blue Jays — and earn manager Bob Melvin his 601st win with the team, passing Art Howe for third most in franchise history — the A’s are right back to their winning ways. The win put the A’s in a tie with the Mariners for the second American League Wild Card spot and kept the A’s within five games of the Astros for the division lead after Houston defeated Seattle earlier on Wednesday.
