The Royals and the A’s got the MLB postseason started in thrilling fashion last night. Down 7-3 after the sixth inning, the Royals scraped their way to a tie in the ninth before winning 9-8 in extra innings.

"Unfortunately I don't think there was any communication," Fuld said about his crash with Gomes. "It was just too loud. I yelled, but it was just so loud that we could be right next to each other and not hear each other."
