The A’s swept the Yankees in a four-game series, so it’s understandable why they were pretty stoked after winning in 12 innings on Sunday 5-4. Coco Crisp smacked a walk-off single to give Oakland the victory and then was pelted multiple times during the postgame celebration. His teammates got him with a freezing cold bucket of water — which he was expecting — and then two shaving cream pies and a bucket of gum and sunflower seeds — which he wasn’t expecting, leaving him dripping with frost and other assortments.

The A’s lead the league in walk-off wins with 11 this season so they’re used to the shaving cream pie celebrations, but they went a wee bit overboard on this one. They’re also 14-2 in July and now only .5 games behind the Angels for second in the AL West and wild card. As they said in “Moneyball,” “What is happening in Oakland?!?!”
