=Oakland finally snapped out of it and beat the Mariners 12-3 just as word filtered down the Angels lost 5-2. Your Magic Number? 0. As in "clinched." As in "playoffs!"

Who the A's play is still up in the air. It'll be whoever wins the Central which would mean either the Tigers or the Twins (or in other words, they'll be playing not the New York Yankees). But we'll let them worry about it later.

If, like us, you love watching champagne celebrations in locker rooms, KTVU has the raw footage of it. And Athletics Nation has pretty much the live blogging action. It's a pretty fun read.
