Royals return to playoffs in dramatic fashion

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) It had been 29 years since the Kansas City Royals had last been to the postseason - nearly three decades spent mostly in baseball's backwater, a small-market organization on a shoe-string budget trying in vain to compete with the big boys.

On Tuesday night, they returned to the game's grand stage in dramatic fashion.

Salvador Perez singled home the winning run with two outs in the 12th inning, capping two late comebacks that gave Kansas City a thrilling 9-8 victory over the Oakland Athletics and sent the Royals to a best-of-five Division Series against the Los Angeles Angels.
