Going into Saturday, the American League Wild Card standings were as follows: 1) Tampa Bay 2) Oakland 3) Cleveland. But it was close.
How close? Well, Tampa lost to Baltimore and Cleveland beat Kansas City. Initially, it looked as if Oakland was going to beat San Francisco, which would have made it 1) Oakland 2) Cleveland 3) Tampa Bay. The Giants have rallied, however, and it looks like Oakland will be the odd team out headed into Sunday.
Yusmiero Petit, the young AJ Puk, and Lou Trivino combined to give up five runs without getting as much as an out in the top of the eighth and it has gone from 4–2 to 7–4.
Don’t count the A’s out, though. They have one more series in New York and one more in Houston but otherwise it’s smooth sailing with a bunch of games against Texas, Los Angeles, and Seattle. The A’s should sizzle.
Kansas City Royals
From 1955 to 1968, there was a club in the American League known as the Kansas City Athletics. That franchise plays in Oakland today.
The A’s are one of the AL’s eight charter franchises and played in Philadelphia for over 50 years before packing up and heading West, twice. First two Kansas City and then to Oakland. The Royals were simply an expansion team that started in Kansas City much later.
The Royals and A’s play two series a year and this is just the first in 2019, despite being nearly September. The Royals will go to Oakland for a series beginning on September 16, when the A’s finish a push toward the playoffs with home series vs. KC and Texas and then at the Angels and at the Mariners.
