OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Brandon Crawford hit a grand slam, Chadwick Tromp and Darin Ruf added two-run homers, and the San Francisco Giants prevented the Oakland Athletics from clinching the AL West title at home with a 14-2 victory. 

The Giants earned their first win in six tries during this year’s Bay Bridge Series.

Oakland, already into the playoffs for a third straight season, needed a win or a loss by the rival Astros to secure their first division crown since 2013. 

Houston won at home against the Diamondbacks.
