Athletics 3, Royals 2
OAKLAND, Calif. — Josh Reddick's sacrifice fly off Joakim Soria broke an eighth-inning tie for the Athletics. After Soria relieved to start the eighth, Billy Burns tripled into the rightfield corner and Reddick flied to center with one out. Burns scored standing up, easily beating Lorenzo Cain's throw and giving Soria his first loss since July 11. Kansas City built a 2-0 lead on Alex Gordon's RBI single in the second and Mike Moustakas' homer in the third.
