It started to rain at the O.co Coliseum in the 7th inning Wednesday night. Detroit had a two run lead that they carried into the 9th. It looked like the Tigers might end the A’s phenomenal season. But very few people left the stadium. They knew better. The A’s have been coming from behind all season, thrilling fans with 14 walk-off wins. Make that 15 now.
Oakland put three runs on the board in the bottom of the 9th to win 4-3. Coco Crisp was the walk-off hero, driving Seth Smith in from second base. And celebration erupted inside the Coliseum.
With the series now tied 2-2, Thursday night’s game five in Oakland will decide who moves on to the American League Championship Series.
