ROYALS PICK UP FIRST PLAYOFF WIN IN ALMOST 3 DECADES; GIANTS CRUISE

It had been 29 years since the last time the Royals were in a playoff game, so this one was extra special. Salvador Perez hit a walkoff single in the bottom of the 12th to give Kansas City baseball joy for the fist time in nearly three decades. Down 7-3 in the bottom of the of the 8th the Royals answered, scoring 4 unanswered runs to send it to extras. The Athletics, a sleeper for the World Series went up 8-7 in the top of the 12th after Callaspo batted in Reddick. The Royals once again answered the call with two runs in the bottom of the frame to win 9-8. The Royals will face the Angels on the 2nd.

The other wildcard game ¬†wasn’t as much of a thriller as the Giants blew out the Pirates 8-0 in a game highlighted by a grand slam from Brandon Crawford in the 4th.¬†“We thrive in these situations,” Crawford said. “I don’t know what it is. We just keep fighting no matter what the circumstance.” The Giants won their seventh straight elimination game, a streak that dates back to 2012. “We’ve been through it before, a lot of this team has,” Brandon Belt said. “We used that experience tonight. We know when we get in these situations we’re going to have a good ballclub.”
