• This was the first time the A's have come back from 10 runs down since they came back from 12 runs down as the Philadelphia Athletics on June 15, 1925 vs. Cleveland. It's the Twins' largest blown lead in a loss since blowing a 10-run lead at Cleveland on Sept. 28, 1984.
• Gio Gonzalez allowed 11 ER in 2 2/3 IP. Since the A's moved to Oakland in 1968, he's the third A's pitcher to allow 11 ER in a start. However, he's the first pitcher in the major leagues since Zack Greinke in June 2005 to give up 11 ER and get a no-decision.
• The A's became the first team since 1954 to win when their starting pitcher gives up 11 ER.
• Matt Holliday had his 12th career multi-HR game and fourth career grand slam; Justin Morneau had his 11th career multi-HR game and sixth career grand slam.
