AL Wild Card Playoff Game Thread: Oakland Athletics at Kansas City Royals (2)

We're going to the second inning, and it already feels like a lifetime. We've never had our spirits higher than when Brandon Moss--of the questioned lineup decision--tagged a Shields' pitch for a two-out, two-run home run to give the A's an early 2-0 lead, but the Royals came right back and after two defensive miscues by the A's, and some wildness by Lester, the Royals scratched out a run, and could have--maybe should have--had more, but the A's picked off Billy Butler and threw to the plate for the third out in a mental error by the Royals with their best hitter at the plate. It's 2-1 A's, going to the second, LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
