Kansas City Wins Exciting Wild Card Game Over Athletics
It took 12 innings, but the Kansas City Royals won the American League Wild Card game over the Oakland Athletics 9-8.
With two outs in the 12th inning, Salvador Perez singled down the left-field line. That allowed Christian Colon to score from second base and give Kansas City the win.
It was the Royals first appearance in a postseason game in 29 years.
In the game that lasted nearly five hours, the Royals rallied from deficits of 7-3 and 8-7.
The Royals next play the Angels in Anheim, Calif.
The National League Wild Card playoff is set for Wednesday between the visiting San Francisco Giants and the Pittsburgh Pirates.
