AL Wild Card Playoff Game Thread: Oakland Athletics at Kansas City Royals (7)

EMERGENCY NEW THREAD! A lot, A LOT has happened in this game, but I think the sixth thread has finally run its course. With Moss' second perfectly-timed home run after Yost pulled Shields at 82 pitches for a rookie pitcher, the  A's turned around a 3-2 deficit into a 5-2 lead. The A's added on (!!) to bring the score to 7-3 and Lester was cruising until the eighth, where things have fallen apart in short order. It's 7-6, the tying run is at third base with one out, and the winning run--the Royals best player--is up. LET'S GO OAK-LAND!
