It was a pretty great week for Oakland Athletics baseball. Not only did they rack up a season-high five-game winning streak, but along the way, players like Stephen Piscotty and Mark Canha made their mark. Scroll to see how Twitter reacted.
And they fittingly lead the majors in road home runs this year.
A's now own the modern record for consecutive road games with a home run, at 25 games in a row, after Mark Canha goes deep to give Oakland a 2-0 lead in the fifth.— Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) June 24, 2018
We don’t know about such things around here.

Best win of the season?
Rumor has it a “Let’s Go Oakland” chant could be heard during Tuesday’s game.

Oh, we’re paying attention alright.
What a way to win!
Max Muncy is an outright star right now ... and we all saw that coming, right? A thread:

I was one of the few people who defending choosing Max Muncy over Arismendy Alcantara, who is now in the Mexican League. Not even a hint of irony in this one. pic.twitter.com/VDAcRqZHjH— Duncan (@DunxMuro) June 24, 2018
this was meant as a complement to Trevor Plouffe pic.twitter.com/7QZca6JIEy— Duncan (@DunxMuro) June 24, 2018
Something is happening. We’re just not quite sure what.

Baseball is weird.
Max Muncy is one of the best hitters in baseball. Teams actually want Mark Canha. Sonny Gray is bad. Baseball is weird.— PWH (@BWH85) June 24, 2018
Seriously none of this would have made sense to me in 2015.
