PHOENIX (AP) - In late September, new Oakland catcher John Jaso watched from the visiting side as the Athletics rallied for yet another walkoff win in a season defined by game-ending hits and whipped-cream pie celebrations.
The A's stunned Jaso's Seattle Mariners 7-4 on Brandon Moss' three-run homer in the 10th inning that day, and Oakland used a fantastic finish the rest of the way to capture the AL West.
Silently, Jaso was rooting for those guys in green and gold across the diamond. He appreciated their fight to do anything to stay in the playoff chase, when nobody expected them to top the Texas Rangers. The A's became the first team in major league history to win a division or pennant after trailing by five games with less than 10 to play.
