Submitted by Ricky Clark, A’s manager
In their first playoff appearance since the 2018 season, the 25+ American Division A’s won their first championship by way of sweeping through the playoffs. The #1 seed A’s took on the #2 seed Astros and won in two games.
In the first game of the Championship series, the A’s got out to a big lead before the Astros climbed back into the game, making it a two-run game in the sixth inning. The A’s rallied back in the eighth inning and won by six runs.
In the final game, the A’s broke it open early, led by a 21 run performance by the offense and a complete-game effort on the mound by Jon Martinez en-route to a 21-4 victory to clinch the A’s first championship!
