A’s, Rangers decide A.L West championship before sellout crowd

It comes down to game No. 162 for the A’s to decide the American League West championship. With so much riding on this contest, I’ll post the lineups and let you enjoy it play out.

Here’s a story from my colleague Dan Brown on what A’s G.M. Billy Beane thinks of his team reaching this unlikely point.

The starting nine(s):

A’s — Crisp CF, Drew SS, Cespedes LF, Moss 1B, Reddick RF, Donaldson 3B, Smith DH, Kottaras C, Pennington 2B; Griffin RHP.

Rangers — Kinsler 2B, Andrus SS, Hamilton CF, Beltre DH, Cruz RF, Young 3B, Murphy LF, Napoli 1B, Soto C; Dempster RHP.

    The Coliseum may be old, but it sure has seen its share of winning teams and champions. Probably more so than anyother active sports facility. The Big A and Dodger stadium are just as old, but nowhere near the number of titles.

    Yes far more than Fenway which happens to be twice as old
