The Nightcap – 9/30: A’s Sweep Mariners, 49ers Pound Jets, Etc.

This just in: the A’s are a pretty good baseball team. Oakland completed the sweep of the Mariners this afternoon thanks to some late-game power. Oakland is just two games back of the Texas Rangers as they will host the Rangers in the final series of the season.

The 49ers absolutely destroyed the New York Jets on the road, 34-0. To sum things up, Rex Ryan simply said, “We got our ass kicked.”

A much different story for the Raiders, who got a butt-whooping of their own courtesy of Peyton Manning and the Broncos. Oakland now falls to 1-3 as they head into a bye week.

And to wrap things up, the Giants came from behind with two ninth-inning home runs and defeated the San Diego Padres 7-5. Not that the games really matter at this point, but it’s nice to have some tight games to prepare for the postseason.
