Four players came up huge for the Oakland A’s in Tuesday night’s 2-1 victory over the Angels and that was just in the ninth inning.

Alberto Callaspo started the winning rally with a single. Jemile Weeks pinch-ran for him and tagged up on a heads-up play to advance to second. Coco Crisp work a ten-pitch walk that eventually loaded the bases and Josh Donaldson delivered a walk-off hit to score Weeks and give the A’s a dramatic win.

It was a wild scene as A’s players burst out of the dugout to mob Donaldson by first base. Turns out it was a wild scene inside the dugout as well. For much different reasons.

The bathroom flooded in the home dugout in the middle of the game just the latest chapter in the sewage saga that has played out at the A’s home ballpark this season.

“Another O.co Coliseum flub there” said reliever Jerry Blevins who described a “pretty good coating” of sewage on the dugout floor when he returned to the dugout after pitching the top of the seventh. Ninth-inning thrills … another A’s victory … a bathroom malfunction.

Is there any better way to sum up the experiences of this team over the last two seasons?

Plumbing issues aside Tuesday night was pretty important for the A’s.

After starting their homestand on a flat note with Monday’s 12-1 drubbing by the Angels they needed to stop the bad vibes before they started to mushroom. The A’s are trying to nail down the American League West and with second-place Texas winning they don’t want the Rangers generating belief they can jump back in the division picture.
