OAKLAND, Calif. — The Athletics lowered their magic number to one for clinching their second straight AL West title, cruising behind the pitching of Jarrod Parker and hitting of Alberto Callaspo. After a two-hour rain delay, Oakland won its 12th in 15 games and 16th in 21. Parker pitched six strong innings and Callaspo matched his career highs with four hits and three RBIs. Kurt Suzuki and Yoenis Cespedes homered for the A's.
