  • 2014 — 2014 - In their first postseason appearance in 29 years, the Royals come out on top of a wild and crazy Wild Card Game, 9 - 8, in 12 innings over the Athletics. Oakland takes early leads of 2 - 0 and 7 - 3, thanks to a pair of homers and 5 RBIs by DH Brandon Moss, but the Royals come back twice, tying the game at 7 with 3 runs in the 8th and one in the bottom of the 9th. In the 12th, Oakland takes another lead when Alberto Callaspo drives in Josh Reddick from third base with a single, but the Royals come back one final time. Eric Hosmer triples off CF Sam Fuld’s glove with one out, then scores the tying run when Christian Colon singles to third base. After a second out, Colon steals second - the Royals’ seventh stolen base of the game, a postseason record - and Salvador Perez singles down the third-base line to drive him in and end the game, sending Kauffman Stadium into a frenzy.
