Royals Beat A's 9-8 In 12 In AL Wild-Card Thriller

The Kansas City Royals had waited 29 years to reach the postseason. They weren't going down without a fight. Salvador Perez singled down the left-field line with two outs in the 12th inning, allowing Christian Colon to score from second base and giving the long-suffering Royals a 9-8 victory over the Oakland Athletics in a wild AL wild-card game Tuesday night. Quite a start to October baseball - even if this one appeared to be over in September with plenty of time to spare. The A's raced out to a 7-3 lead by the sixth inning, but the Royals countered with three runs in the eighth. Nori Aoki's sacrifice fly off Sean Doolittle in the ninth forced extra innings. KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – October 1, 2014
