Royals Win Wild Card Game

Finally, after two comebacks, the Kansas City Royals put down the Oakland Athletics in the 12th inning on Monday night in the American League wild-card game. The win puts the Royals back in the playoffs for the first time in 29 years, when the team won the 1985 World Series. The game’s hero was Salvador Perez, who drove home the winning run with a single with two outs in the 12th inning for a final score of 9-8.
