🕐 1 min read

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Khris Davis hit a game-ending grand slam with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning for his third homer of the night, giving the Oakland Athletics an 8-5 victory over the Texas Rangers on Tuesday.

Ian Desmond hit a two-run homer off Ryan Madson (2-0) in the top of the ninth to put Texas ahead 5-4, but Davis and the A’s weren’t done.

Pinch-hitter Stephen Vogt reached on an infield single and went to third on Coco Crisp’s double. Two outs and an intentional walk later, Davis launched a drive to left field off Shawn Tolleson (0-2) and handed the Rangers’ closer his fourth blown save.

With his excited teammates waiting at home plate, Davis stopped along the third base line and mimicked a pull-up jumper with his helmet as if he were Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry next door in the NBA playoffs.
