A’s Melvin Given Extension

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) _ Oakland has given manager Bob Melvin a two-year contract extension through the 2016 season.

The deal comes after Oakland became the first team in major league history to win a division or pennant after trailing by five games with less than 10 to play. They finished up by sweeping three games against Texas to beat out the Rangers for the division title.
