The Oakland A’s are on a remarkable winning streak this season, and they pushed that to 11 Wednesday thanks to some mistakes from the Minnesota Twins. The A’s wound up beating the Twins 13-12 at home in 10 innings, but that win came after a couple of bad 10th-inning errors from the Twins. Here’s the first one:

That’s a remarkable collapse for the Twins, who entered the bottom of the 10th up 12-10. But two walks (to Sean Brown and Elvis Andrus), and then these errors, doomed them. And those errors extended the A’s winning streak. Oakland is now 12-7 on the season.
