The Oakland Athletics might have their own "Rally Possum."

Just before the A's started their 10th-inning rally, a possum was spotted in foul territory. After Derek Norris' RBI single cemented Oakland's come-from-behind 3-2 win, A's pitcher Jeff Samardzija was quick to credit the critter.

"He's been out here before when we're warming up," said Jeff Samardzija, via MLB.com. "We're going to have to give him a name or a jersey. We'll keep feeding him, and as long as he keeps giving us enough wins, we'll be all right."
