The A’s are not going away quietly after Josh Harrison’s snow cone grab ends game against Angels


It’s too bad there wasn’t a camera rolling in the clubhouse when Josh Harrison made a snow cone grab to rob Max Stassi and end Saturday’s game with the bases loaded.

There were four people in there, all men who played outsized roles in the game they were watching, and they saw what at this point has to be considered the A’s most important play of the season, given the circumstances. If Harrison, who’s listed at 5-foot-8, doesn’t cradle that liner in the tippy-top of his glove’s webbing, the A’s go from a 3-1 victory over the Angels to a 3-3 tie. After that, who knows?

But Harrison leaped at the right time. He kept control of the ball after he landed on the ground (a point of contention earlier in the game on a certain catch by Deolis Guerra, for some strange reason). And the A’s stayed within striking distance of the Blue Jays and Yankees (and even Red Sox) in what has turned into a scintillating American League wild-card race.

Guerra was in the clubhouse in the ninth inning. So was A’s manager Bob Melvin, who got ejected for bringing up several logical points when Guerra’s completion of what was initially called a successful double play got overturned after Angels manager Joe Maddon asked for a review.
