The A’s automatically punched a ticket to the postseason just minutes after first pitch in Seattle, after the Rays lost on Monday. 

Then they went bonkers and hit four homers to beat the Mariners, 7-3, and put an exclamation point on an extraordinary day, capping it with a champagne-soaked celebration.

Check out some more video and pics from the celebration. 

This team was supposed to lose 85+. To be a playoff team of any kind is remarkable. Somehow the A’s always remain relevant.
