As we count down the remaining games in the waning 2013 season, the A's are looking at a magic number of 6; these 6 games are the only things standing in the way of a back-to-back American League West Championship for our team. The A's play first today, so they have a chance to lower the number to 5 as A.J. Griffin takes on Jason Vargas in this afternoon's contest.
