It wasn’t how anyone expected, especially me, but the Royals beat the A’s in the bottom of the 12th on a single down the line from the bat of Salvador Perez.

Welp, Brandon Moss is at it again. Two jacks, five RBIs. 5 to 3 A’s.

Yordano Ventura is entering the ball game in relief of James Shields. It is his second relief appearance of the season and his career.

Geovany Soto is done for the evening. At the end of the second he was seen in the dugout removing his gear and talking with team trainers. He injured his left thumb on a tag of Eric Hosmer. Soto heard a pop and cannot receive the ball correctly. Derrek Norris will take over behind the plate.

Seems like the Norris-Lester connection has gotten Lester back on track after a rocky start. The A’s desperately need a run in the next 3 outs though.

It’ll be the A’s last chance at James Shields.

James Shields has thrown 12 of 19 first pitch strikes through five innings.

Nothing going in the top of the second, still 2 to 0 A’s. Mid second.

At the end of one, two to one A’s.

Stupid baseball Billy Butler. The play is in front of you. Don’t move until he throws home.
