Athletics 8, Royals 3

OAKLAND, Calif. — Jon Lester pitched into the seventh inning to win his Athletics debut, and his former Red Sox teammate and ex-Ray Jonny Gomes produced two timely hits during an eight-run burst in his return to Oakland. "After warming up it felt a little more normal, getting back to the pitching performance and worrying about that and not worrying about living situations or moving or anything like that," Lester said. "It was a little different at first."
