In case anyone was wondering, Josh Donaldson is good at his job. As in “If the A’s are losing in the 9th and Donaldson is the go ahead run at the plate, just cue up Celebration by Kool and the Gang” good at his job.

The A’s went back and forth with the Orioles and Donaldson’s old nemesis, Manny Machado, looked like he was going to slug the first place Orioles past the first place A’s.

Jeff Samardzija was going to have another hard luck loss.

Oh wait. Donaldson was up as the winning run. My bad. Nothing to worry about here.

One walk off come from behind 3 run bottom of the 9th home run coming up!

BOOM! A’s are 5-4 winners. If this is a playoff preview, then the East Bay will be rocking.

Time to update the Dodged Bullet/Teeth Grinder tally.

An explanation of what this is all about can be found HERE.
