We beat Jon Lester. Ned Yost keeps his job. Eric Hosmer gets his 2nd triple of the season. And Salvador wins it. #Royals

Lang Whitaker

Best part of KC winning? MORE BUNTS.

Jimmy Spencer

Now if the Giants lose tomorrow, Bay Area fans can at least band back together and start analyzing Steve Kerr's training-camp ball movement.

Bill Reiter

Man, baseball is such a great game, and to see that expressed in a place like Kansas City breaking a generation-old drought is mesmerizing.

Chris Vernon

bruh... RT @darrenrovell DO YOU BELIEVE IN MI-ROYALS?! #KCComeback

George Brett’s reaction was the best quote for this game.

Yes, blame me for the A's getting bounced out early again.

George Brett had a swing. Beautiful hitter.

Curious if the Royals leave their manager off their division series roster.

Tim Bontemps

Even Ned Yost couldn't keep the Royals out of the ALDS. Congrats to my pals @Michael Lee and @Bill Reiter for their Royals winning.

Jimmy Spencer

Salvador Perez ... Of all guys to get the game-winning hit after his early misses opportunities. That game was incredible.

Dan Woike

Adam Dunn would've gotten that out.

Jeff Wade

Beltre makes that play while farting and thinking about his current to-do list...

Sean Highkin

smh Lorde couldn't even watch this game because Taylor Swift and @Mobute made her go to bed at her normal bedtime

Going to Kansas City, Kansas City here I come #Angels

Breathe, @LorenzoButlerPR. Remember to breathe

Dave Mason

No one thought the A's would lose a 7-3 lead with Lester. Unbelievable.

Tony Mejia

Classy of Jonny Gomes to flip that little Royals kid that baseball. Nice to see. Great game. Go KC.

Sean Grande

Tonight they're going to party like its 1985.

John Ireland

That game sums up how the A's played for the last 3 months. What a great night for the Royals and KC. Angels/Royals start Thursday

Ben Standig

Does Ned Yost still get fired???

Mark Followill

I guess Salvador Perez made up for that God-awful AB in the 9th

Ramona Shelburne

So happy for the Royals. So sad for Adam Dunn

Tony Jones

This is like the worst player on the court hitting the game-winning shot from 30 feet

Candace Buckner

Salvador Perez. Yup. I'm sorry.

Brian May

The Kansas City Royals beat the Oakland A's 9-8 in 12 innings to win the AL Wildcard game. #MLBWildcard

Final: Royals 9, A’s 8. Epic game. Baseball won. Baseball’s postseason, you in?

Geoff Calkins

Everybody's watching. RT @Marreese Speights: This Game is crazy!!!

Jody Genessy

Chuck Norris wouldn't have dropped that ball.

Bill Reiter

Steal! Small ball! NED YOST I .... don't hate you?

Candace Buckner

I was completely expecting for Salvador Perez to swing at that pitch out.

Mike Wise

Perez has the pitch selectivity of an unemployed movie executive.

Bill Reiter

Son and daughter, born in KC, fell asleep during game. So we're pulling for KC for them. #Believe

Marcus Thompson

Perez is so do for a big hit

Pete Pranica

Just a hint: We've got something special planned from @Memphis Grizzlies training camp.

John R. Finger

Ripken said, "No doubles ..."

Scott Cacciola

Oh, so THAT'S where the centerfielder is located.

John Canzano

Game 3 of 2005 World Series I saw a little kid fall asleep on top of the Astros dug out from the press box. We’re headed there tonight.

Dan Woike

It sure doesn't hurt the Angels that both these teams are blowing through their bullpens and game 1 in Anaheim is Thursday

Jody Genessy

Uh, oh. @RideUTA just informed TBS that PitchTrax has shut down for the night.

Matt Steinmetz

Drunk or not, that guy's gotta get someone to look in on his dog if he ain't making it home.

Mike Wise

Bill Reiter

I'm not sure how much more of this I can take.

Ben Standig

Talking the game not the league. No clock makes baseball the best game around. Gotta get outs.

Howard Beck

DirecTV should merge its ad campaigns, so that Creepy Rob Lowe can do something terrible to those creepy marionettes.

Matt Watson

Let's all RT that Ned Yost bunting baseball card at the same time and see what happens

Dan Woike

This game has made me stupid. I'm now singing "Pop it up up up Pop it up up up Pop it up up up" and I've never listened to that song

Dan Gelston

It's been 29 years since the Royals last started this game.

Chris Vernon

kc waited 29 yrs so that is how long this game is gonna go

Lang Whitaker

Man on first, one out, BUNT HIM OVER

Joseph Goodman

Swinging bunts suddenly sounds so dirty.

Dave Mason

http://t.co/LqaYdAnVrx

Bill Reiter

Friend just direct messaged me: "Are you OK?" I told him the truth: "I'm really not."

Jody Genessy

Hosmer now only needs to slide into second and third bases to complete the cycle.

Mark Followill

And the Baltimore chop keeps it going in Kansas City #sports

Sean Highkin

I had it but the damn barcode scanner would never read my cards. RT @bobmcadoo3: @Sean Highkin did you ever play nfl showdown?

Trey Kerby

Haven't seen a bounce like that since DinoBall in @Tas Melas' backyard. @Jdragon3

Matt Watson

Whoa. If this was a movie ... well, we probably would have left already because it started at 8. But still, unbelievable.

Tony Jones

I feel like that little kid swinging on the ceiling in that commercial: THHIIISSS ISSS AWWWEEESSSSSOOOOMMMEEEE

Candace Buckner

Nobody has better bro'd than Eric Hosmer has bro'd just now

Mark Kreidler

Hey, maybe Adam Dunn gets in this game after all. #eventually

Bill Reiter

Post-season baseball has become a game of momentum. And this is now The Momentum Series. #Believe

Rob Peterson

"OK, I want you to rocket the next pitch off the plate..." "But, Skip." "JUST DO IT!"

Scott Cacciola

This reminds me of that Love It or List It episode when I definitely thought they were going to love it but then they listed it.

Bill Reiter

I do not have enough alcohol in the house for this. And that is saying something.

Joe Freeman

This game is insane, y'all.

Dan Woike

When does this go to penalty kicks? I need to go pick up dinner

Andrew Sharp

Hey, while baseball happens, on NBATV Isiah Thomas is announcing a Wolves scrimmage and comparing Andrew Wiggins to Deion Sanders

John Schuhmann

Perfect time for the swinging bunt.

Mike Wise

Like I said, I'm staying up till this heirloom ends, baby!

Howard Chen

The Royals are not dead. I love this game.

Tony Jones

CRAZIEST. GAME. EVER.

Eric Smith

You gotta be sh*ttin' me. This is awesome.

Ben Standig

With Colon at the plate, I smell a hit.

Brian May

Yoenis Cespedes to the A's: Miss me?

Mark Followill

For a minute I was thinking inside the park HR

Bill Reiter

If the Royals strand this dude I am going to need some serious help ....

Tony Jones

Bunt em home Yost!!!!!

Jon Krawczynski

Is Jeter available to pinch hit here?

Matt Watson

Kinda want to see Colon squeeze this if you know what I mean

Michael Lee

Ha RT @RotoAnalysis: Ned Yosts baseball card. Too perfect http://t.co/XyvsAkbWUT

Candace Buckner

That's something I would've expected from the Royals circa 1986-2013.

Sean Highkin

Bunting would actually make sense here.

Dan Woike

So close to an inside-the-park-hosmer

Sean Highkin

Ibanez keeping MLB Showdown alive.

Bill Reiter

Royals fans are going to take the bunt of the pain.

Tim Kawakami

It's Otero. Only threw 12 pitches last inning, I can understand this.

Sean Highkin

Wait Raul Ibanez still plays? (legit question)

Bill Reiter

I really, really liked Billy Beane and the narrative surrounding him entering this game. But I can feel the loathing building.

John Canzano

Connor “Pine Tar” Letourneau RT @ConnOregonian: @John Canzano Fun Fact: My middle name is Brett. I'm named after George Brett.

Kevin Arnovitz

So the MLB can't install technology at home plate that shopkeepers the world over use at the thresholds of their stores?

Paul Flannery

I don't care anymore. I just wanted to see Adam Dunn.

John Canzano

All Bob Melvin needs to worry about now is making sure the KC grounds crew doesn’t roll anyone up in the tarp in the B12.

Tim Kawakami

So it'll be Cook in the bottom of the 12th, right?

Geoff Calkins

Because he thinks a switch is something you use to hit your kids. RT @BradCarson: Why not just use Barkley for baseball too?

Jimmy Spencer

It sounds so anti-climatic when the road team goes ahead in extras, but I think I just heard a loud roar coming across the Bay from the East

Dan Woike

oof RT @NateSilver538 Callaspectacular moment.

Rob Peterson

I understand that less than all the bunting. You have a guy who can get grounders, and you call for a pitch up in the zone with a guy on 3d?

Ben Standig

Now the greatest hyperventilating 21-year-old fireballer ever is on the hook for the loss. Boo.

Tas Melas

Jason Frasor is a Blue Jay at heart. Getting back at the Royals for 1985.

Bill Reiter

Man. man man man man man. Let there be more magic lurking in that Royals dugout.

Jody Genessy

It's a shame Finnegan had the late-night shift at the Irish pub and couldn't pitch anymore.

Mike Wise

It's over. I'm going to bed.

Joseph Goodman

Professional base knock there. (I’m saying baseball things.)

Lang Whitaker

It's too bad they got rid of the outfield fountains b/c I'd like to see someone bunt into them.

Dave Mason

Callaspo!!! http://t.co/q2AZOLKI3l

Rob Peterson

Why are you calling for a pitch up when all you need is a fly ball?

Mike Wise

Take that, small ball.

Bill Reiter

Yeah, I tweet about positivity and then a passed ball. Great.

Geoff Calkins

Didn't Obama say there would be no bunts on the ground?

Marcus Thompson

Runner on 3rd with 1 out. What does Callaspo do with it?

Rob Peterson

Mmm... bundts. http://t.co/Q7Ctg5FSua

The beauty of sports is giving yourself to something you have absolutely no control over. Royals and A's fans feeling that more than ever.

Jimmy Spencer

MLB is trying to pull off what the NBA accomplished and have a wild first round. Problem is, it's only two games "technically"

Dan Woike

I like big bunts and I cannot lie. You other brothers can't deny. (Doing your job for you @alyankovic)

Jimmy Spencer

Playoff sports are just the best.

Mike Mazzeo

Could speed things up by starting every inning with an out and a runner on second. Speed up committee should take notice.

Buddy Grizzard

I really hope Dennis has a good year so I can get over some Dieng remorse

Trey Kerby

I haven't thought about bunts this much in ages.

Jeff Wade

Anybody remember three innings ago when this game was exciting? God how I miss those days...

Bill Reiter

Why does it feel 1,000 times more likely the A's will get that runner on second in with one out than with the Royals earlier?

Mike Mazzeo

Moneyball has been replaced by Yostball

Chris Vernon

hahahhahahhahahahahahahaha

Dan Woike

In Vegas. Shouldn't have taken the under on bunts (it was 13).

Joseph Goodman

Do it for the Memphis Chicks!…Which would be a totally unacceptable name for a team these days, btw.

Marcus Thompson

Look at that. A's playing postseason baseball

Michael Dugat

It's almost like people didn't get the memo that this MLB season was cancelled ... to begin anew when the Rangers are healthy.

John Canzano

Let’s just roll out Carney Lansford vs George Brett for a hitting competition and get this wildcard thing settled.

Jimmy Spencer

A's and Royals fans .... How are you guys holding up? This has to be crushing your stomachs.

Buddy Grizzard

Flip Saunders needs a stylist.

Chris Vernon

hoping the A's just troll em at this point and bunt

Rob Peterson

All I know is that the Brewers would have popped out to the pitcher on half of these bunts...

Rick Bonnell

To say baseball has created a stupid system at this point is a waste of time. #sad

Tim Kawakami

KC has 6 stolen bases and 3 sac bunts. A's have 0 and 0. Hidden yardage!

Rob Peterson

Just keeping guys out of the double plays ...

Mike Wise

I love Ernie Johnson and know it's baseball, but whenever Charles and Kenny aren't around I feel like he got the second team.

Michael Lee

Lay it down, lay it down, you Royals lay it down #staybunted

Dan Woike

Just because Sogard has glasses, it doesn't make him a doctor, Winer!

Joseph Goodman

Fans in KC have been drunk and then sober like 3 1/2 times during this game.

Bill Reiter

Again. A hit. One swing. Let's do this. In the meantime, more whiskey ....

Howard Chen

Drat. I wanted to see Dyson do another dance.

Chris Vernon

the Royals will win via bunt if it is the last thing they do hahaha

Jody Genessy

I've never understood fans who boo when a pitcher throws to first base.

Lang Whitaker

Royals better not hit a fly ball to the outfield because umps will call it an infield fly #neverforget #Barves

Bill Reiter

If Royals win, and you happen to be in KC, celebration should be Garozzo's for dinner, The Shack for drinks, and BBQ for breakfast.

Dan Woike

Just stole the Royals sign for sacrifice bunt -- it's breathing.
