It took a series of overtime, but the Toronto Blue Jays finally beat the Athletics 6-5 Monday at Oakland Coliseum.

The visitors were sometimes surprised by the resilience of the A’s (42-96), who nevertheless have the worst record in major league baseball this season. The Jays (76-62) can’t really afford to lose any more in their run to the playoffs and they struck at the right time.

After nine innings, the score was 3-3. Toronto, however, added three points in 10e, which was enough to stifle the return attempt of the A. Spencer Horwitz went there from the point of victory on a double. The other team pleaded with the referee after the ball got stuck under the center wall of the pitch, but the referee stood by his decision.

The Athletics were dangerous with their long balls. Lawrence Butler hit two in fifth and 10e sleeve. Ryan Noda and Jordan Diaz also added a point each on a single swing.

In the fifth, the Blue Jays showed why they’re one of the best teams since August when they have two outs against them and men on the cushions. Kevin Kiermaier put his guys in this position at the start of a productive streak.

The outfielder hit a double play, but Alejandro Kirk made it through home plate. The next hitter, George Springer, then hit a double and allowed Daulton Varsho to score. Cavan Biggio finished that offensive push with a single for Springer to complete his lap of the trails.

With this victory, the Blue Jays approach a half game of the Texas Rangers (76-61), who occupy the last place giving access to the playoffs of the American League. On Monday, they were beaten 13-6 by the Houston Astros (78-61).
