Royals rally to take series in Oakland

(TSX / STATS) -- OAKLAND, Calif. -- When Kansas City faced the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday afternoon, the Royals still felt the sting from their high-scoring loss and bullpen meltdown in the eighth inning from the night before.

The Royals blew another lead in the eighth inning Wednesday, but this time they rallied to beat the A's 7-6 and cap their eight-game road trip with a second straight 2-1 series win.

Alcides Escobar hit a leadoff double against A's reliever Blake Treinen in the ninth, and Alex Gordon lined an RBI single to right, breaking a 6-6 tie. Kelvin Herrera pitched a scoreless bottom of the ninth for his 26th save, stranding Ryon Healy at second.
