OAKLAND Joe Carter Jersey , Calif. (AP) — Oakland will have to take its bubbly on the road.Kyle Gibson allowed one run over 7 1/3 innings, Jake Cave hit a two-run homer and the Minnesota Twins beat the Athletics 5-1 Sunday, preventing Oakland from clinching an AL wild-card berth in its last regular-season home game.“I think it was a little disappointing,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said. “A lot of times we put on our best shows late in games, unfortunately it didn’t happen today.”Oakland leads Tampa Bay by 7½ games and needs one win or a Rays loss to clinch its first playoff berth in four years. The A’s remained 1½ games behind the New York Yankees, who have clinched a wild-card berth, and fell 4½ games back of AL West-leading Houston.After going 50-31 for its best home record since 2013, the A’s finish with three-game series at Seattle and the Los Angeles Angels. Oakland is 60-26 since mid-June.“It would have been nice to clinch, but we weren’t changing anything up or anything like that,” A’s first baseman Matt Olson said.Gibson (9-13) gave up seven hits and three walks. Trevor May struck out Ramon Laureano with two on in the eighth and pitched around a one-out walk in the ninth for his first big league save.Minnesota finished 29-52 on the road.Oakland won two of three despite going 0 for 21 with runners in scoring position in the series, including seven at-bats Sunday.Trevor Cahill (6-4) allowed five runs — three earned — and five hits in 3 1/3 innings.Cave hit a two-run homer in the first, but Olson cut the lead in half in the second with his 28th homer.Minnesota added three runs in the fourth after Robbie Grossman singled with one out and Tyler Austin hit a potential double-play grounder to third baseman Matt Chapman, who threw the ball to the left of second baseman Chad Pinder and into right field for his 19th error.“I was worried about the catch and I didn’t pick up my target,” Chapman said. “I think I had a little more time, I might have rushed my throw because I wanted to turn the double play. It was my fault that three runs scored so it doesn’t really feel good.”Max Kepler hit an RBI single http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-j.a.-happ-jersey , Ehire Adrianza chased Cahill with a run-scoring double and Chris Gimenez greeted Shawn Kelley with a sacrifice fly.“For the last couple of years we’ve seen people celebrate when we’re in town,” Gibson said. “To be able to finish off the season and not have to watch anybody celebrate, kind of nice.”FAN BASEA crowd of 35,754 raised Oakland’s season total at home to 1,527,588.FRANCHISE MARKJoe Mauer was 2 for 4. His fifth-inning single was his 3,072nd time reaching base, tying Harmon Killebrew’s franchise record. Twins manager Paul Molitor said he’s been communicating regularly with Mauer about his role in this week’s six-game homestand. Mauer is contemplating retirement.“We haven’t finalized how many games he will play throughout the course of the week, and which game of this particular campaign will be his last one,” Molitor said.TRAINER’S ROOMTwins: C Mitch Garver (concussion) played catch on the field, but Molitor said it has not been determined whether he will play again this year. Garver has been out since he took a foul tip to his mask on Sept. 12. … Molitor expects to make decisions on the playing status of 3B Miguel Sano (lower left leg bruise) and 2B Logan Forsythe (left knee inflammation) on Tuesday.UP NEXTTwins: Minnesota has not announced a starting pitcher for Monday’s series opener against Detroit.Athletics: RHP Daniel Mengden (7-6, 4.00 ERA) will make his first start since June 23 in Monday’s series opener in Seattle. Mengden is 1-0 with 1.83 ERA in five relief appearances since being called up from Triple-A Nashville on Aug. 27. MILWAUKEE (AP) — It’s going down to the last day of the regular season to decide the NL Central.The Milwaukee Brewers moved into a tie for first place with the Chicago Cubs with one game remaining, getting two homers from Triple Crown candidate Christian Yelich to beat the Detroit Tigers 6-5 on Saturday night.Yelich turned on an 0-1 pitch from left-hander Daniel Stumpf (1-5) and lined it into the second deck in right to break a 5-all tie in the seventh inning. The left-handed slugger also hit a two-run homer in the third inning of the Brewers’ sixth straight win.Seemed like a good time for the typically even-keeled Yelich to show some emotion in a curtain call.“First one ever, so. I don’t really know what to do,” Yelich said.The raucous fans at Miller Park chanted “MVP! MVP!” after Yelich’s go-ahead shot in the seventh. He obliged with a brief appearance Kendrys Morales Jersey , lifting his helmet in the air about halfway up the dugout steps.“Everyone was yelling at me to get up there, so I went up there really quick and went right back down,” he said.The Brewers (94-67) were already assured of making their first playoff appearance since 2011, the last time they won the NL Central. They sure would like to get into the postseason again as a division winner, and Chicago opened the door by losing 2-1 to St. Louis earlier Saturday.“Yeah I’m sure it will be pretty crazy,” Yeich said about what to expect on Sunday at Miller Park. “You play all those games and it still comes down to 162.”If the Brewers and Cubs are still tied after Sunday, the teams will face each other on Monday in Chicago for the title.The NL MVP race, on the other hand, may be over after Yelich’s September to remember.He extended his hitting streak to 10 games, going 2 for 3 and driving in three.The NL batting leader is also challenging for a Triple Crown , tied with St. Louis’ Matt Carpenter for the home run lead at 36. With 109 RBIs, Yelich is two behind the Cubs’ Javier Baez.“We’re sitting here every night and I say it’s reached a new level and then it reaches a new level. It’s just special, man,” manager Craig Counsell said.Joakim Soria (3-1) got the win with a scoreless seventh. Jeremy Jeffress picked up his 15th save, striking out the side in the ninth.The bullpen held the Tigers scoreless over the final three innings after a few shaky moments in the middle of the game.Seventh-place hitter Dawel Lugo lined a triple into the right-field corner to lead off the sixth. Pete Kozma Jesse Barfield Jersey , a .209 hitter, then drove in Lugo with a sacrifice fly to left to tie the game at 5.But the Brewers bounced back behind Yelich again.“I just went with what was feeling good tonight and I got ahead and I ended up spinning one up there. That one didn’t go in my favor,” Stumpf said.CALL IT A COMEBACKYelich also helped spark a comeback from a 3-0 hole in the third. He homered into the Brewers’ bullpen in left after leadoff hitter Lorenzo Cain hit an infield single to draw within 3-2. The Brewers strung together four straight hits in a three-run fourth, capped by Kratz’s two-run single.Niko Goodrum had an RBI single in the first and a two-run triple down the right-field line in third to give the Tigers a 3-0 lead.Starter Daniel Norris retired eight of the first nine batters before running into trouble after giving up Cain’s infield single with two outs in the third.Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said the close games in an electric atmosphere will help his young team in the future.“You need to see what it’s like. It makes you hungry to get back,” he said.TRAINER’S ROOMTigers: After sitting out Friday, OF Christin Stewart was shut down for the final two games of the weekend with an abdominal strain.UP NEXTTigers: Rookie Spencer Turnbull (0-1) takes the mound for the season finale. The right-hander recorded his first quality start in the majors on Tuesday, allowing one run on six hits in six innings against Minnesota.Brewers: Counsell named LHP Gio Gonzalez (9-11) the starter for the finale. Gonzalez is 2-0 with a 2.66 ERA in four starts since being acquired in a trade with the Washington Nationals.“For me, I try to take it as just another day, give them whatever they need,” Gonzalez said, “and after that, rely on the team.”
