SEATTLE (AP) The Oakland Athletics have clinched their first playoff berth in four years, earning at least an American League wild card when the Tampa Bay Rays lost to the New York Yankees.

Following three straight last-place finishes in the AL West, the A's found out just a couple of minutes after the first pitch of their game Monday night against Seattle that they are in the postseason for the first time since 2014.
