Online vandals forced Wikipedia to partially lock down its page on the Oakland Athletics.

After Detroit’s 3-0 win Thursday night over the A’s to clinch the American League Divisional Series, someone changed the page to show the team’s new owner as Justin Verlander, among other adjustments.

The page has since been corrected.

The team’s real owners are Lew Wolff and John Fisher, but it’s the second straight year that Verlander beat Oakland in a decisive Game 5 in the ALDS.
