OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Yoenis Cespedes and Josh Donaldson homered, Alberto Callaspo had two hits and drove in two runs, and Bartolo Colon pitched six shutout innings as the Oakland Athletics trimmed their magic number to two with an 11-0 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Friday night.

Josh Reddick had two hits and also drove in a run for the A's, who won for the eighth time in 10 games. The A's can clinch their second consecutive AL West title with a win Saturday combined with a Texas Rangers loss.

Colon (17-6) won his third straight start, giving up five hits, walking one and striking out eight, one off his season high.

Andrew Albers (2-4) lost his fourth straight decision after giving up eight runs — three earned — on eight hits over 4 2-3 innings. He walked one and struck out two.
