"Minus some big postseason games," Lowrie said, "this is about as exciting of a stretch of baseball as I've been a part of."
"It certainly never gets old," A's manager Bob Melvin said. "We've had a number of them over the years here. Once you get one and you come out the next day and you get in that same position, there's still that carry-over feeling. Today it was the same thing even though it took us a little bit longer."
MOMENTS THAT MATTERED
Pitch perfect: Graveman's night didn't begin as planned. The right-hander had at least two baserunners in each of his first two innings, leading catcher Stephen Vogt to call for more changeups than the typical sinker-heavy Graveman had thrown in any other start this season. Resultantly, the right-hander made it through seven innings on 95 pitches without any further damage done, and the bullpen followed suit, as A's pitchers pieced together 10 consecutive scoreless innings.

Graveman was in spectacular form Saturday night, throwing no-hit baseball for 6.2 innings in carrying the A’s to a 6-1 win over the Rangers. The game was close until the final couple of innings, and for that reason Graveman did what aces do.
