After starting the year 1-7, the Oakland Athletics are looking like a completely different team. They entered Wednesday having won 10 consecutive games, looking to add one more to the column against the Twins.

Minnesota was in a position to win this one, with the two teams dancing in extra innings. Well, Oakland got their 11th straight win thanks to a brutal mistake by Minnesota.

Bases loaded, two outs and a groundball... what else could Twins fans would have wanted here? It looked like we were headed to the top of the 11th. Instead, the throw sailed. Just like that, A's win. Holy smokes.
