With the Oakland Athletics on the verge of clinching their second consecutive American League West championship, the bandwagon is filling up fast. Or not. The A's returned home Monday after a weekend sweep of the second-place Texas Rangers. The A's sold 14,629 tickets to Monday's game against the Angels. In a Twitter conversation Tuesday, A's outfielder Josh Reddick and a friend joked about the number of people suddenly interested in free tickets. Casey Pratt, who works for CSN Bay Area, chimed in. @CaseyPrattCSN @TonyTwo_Tone especially when our stadium can't even come close to a sell out on our last homestand.

OAKLAND - The Angels can't come close to matching the Oakland Athletics in volume of talented young starting pitchers, but in Garrett Richards, they have an arm that can cut into the deficit. Richards, mixing a 94-mph fastball with a sharp overhand curve, threw one of the best games of his two-year career Tuesday night, limiting the A's to one run and seven hits in seven innings, striking out six. But all Richards had to show for it was a no-decision, as the A's won, 2-1, on Josh Donaldson's two-out, walk-off single to center field off reliever Michael Kohn in the ninth.

OAKLAND - The Doors' "Love Me Two Times" is on the reel of classic rock playing inside the Oakland Athletics' clubhouse, and the face of the American League wild-card-contending team is in a small eating area. Josh Reddick, 25, grabs a can of whipped cream and sprays some straight into his mouth, showing himself as the good-ol' Georgia boy his teammates enjoy and the player still trying to put on a little weight. Not that it really matters. The 185-pound Reddick has hammered 25 home runs for the A's, and his cannon arm in right field discourages many from trying to take an extra base when any ball is hit in his direction.

OAKLAND -- A successful return to the rotation by Angels right-hander Garrett Richards on Saturday was marred by a rare meltdown by reliever Scott Downs, who gave up a pinch-hit, two-run home run to Derek Norris in the seventh inning of a 3-1 loss to the Oakland Athletics at the Oakland Coliseum. Richards gave up three hits in five scoreless innings and left with a 1-0 lead, but a bullpen that suffered its second blown save in five games couldn't hold on, and the Angels fell 12 games behind the American League West Division-leading A's, matching their largest deficit of the season.

OAKLAND -- A strong scent of desperation was in the air Wednesday in the Oakland Coliseum, where Angels Manager Mike Scioscia, his bullpen options limited by injury and ineffectiveness, went to extreme lengths to win a game Scioscia left starter C.J. Wilson in long enough to throw 123 pitches, a decision the left-hander rewarded by rebounding from a 36-pitch first inning to give up two runs and six hits in 61/3 innings and escape...

OAKLAND -- Some of C.J. Wilson's most dismal performances have come in games in which the Angels staked him to big leads, and the left-hander who too often nibbles at instead of attacking the strike zone seemed headed down that dangerous path again Monday. With a 5-0 lead over the Oakland Athletics, Wilson gave up a double to Jonny Gomes and a run-scoring bloop single to Josh Reddick in the fourth inning and a solo homer to Josh Donaldson in the fifth that made it 5-2. Then in the sixth, with one on and two out, Wilson walked Coco Crisp and Gomes to load the bases for Reddick, who leads the A's with 28 home runs.

Angels 13, Oakland 13 AT THE PLATE: Alberto Callaspo, batting cleanup, was three for three with a run and two runs batted in. Catcher Hank Conger had two hits, raising his spring average to .417. ON THE MOUND: Jered Weaver, who came in having given up one run this spring, gave up three times that many on one swing in the first inning when Josh Reddick hit a three-run home run. And the afternoon went downhill from there with Weaver giving up eight runs and six hits — including three homers — in two innings.
