The text, from a friend who bleeds green and gold, rolled in at 7:42 pm Pacific Standard Time.

Yeah, call it a comeback.

On Tuesday night in Arlington, Texas, the A’s delivered the best win — in all of baseball — in 2018.

The A’s are relentless. The season is magic.

Staring at 10-2 deficit after six innings, the A’s, as they’ve done all season, never gave up. Simply wasn’t an option.

Baseball’s hottest club put up three runs in seventh, four runs in the eighth and then Stephen Piscotty popped this game-tying shot in the ninth.

Khris Davis broke the Rangers’ back in the 10th, drilling a three-run homer to left, landing it in the seats just beyond the wall.

11 unanswered. Just another win for the A’s — the most improbable yet.
