The sweeps were incredibly impressive on both sides, considering that the O’s beat the last 3 AL Cy Young winners in their 3 games, and the Royals were able to hold off the best offensive team in all of baseball.

Baltimore advances with home-field advantage for the ALCS as the AL East Champions, and Kansas City fights their way through Oakland and Los Angeles to advance as the AL Wild Card team.

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014 by Justin Thomas

Wild Card Game - Oakland Athletics v Kansas City RoyalsIt took them 4 hours and 45 minutes and 12 innings, but the Kansas City Royals used their smallball skills to beat the moneyball Oakland A’s, 9-8.
