Loss Extends Kansas City Losing Streak
The Oakland Athletics got a stellar effort from pitcher Shelby Miller, helping Oakland score a 6-2 win over the visiting Kansas City Royals. Miller picked up the win for Oakland, going 8.1 innings. He gave up 1 run on 4 hits. He now sports a record of 10-10. The losses continue to add up for Kansas City, which has now fallen 9 times in a row.

Lucas Edgar made an early impact for Oakland when he stroked his 8th triple of the season. The run-scoring triple, which came with one out in the bottom of the third, put the Athletics on top, 2-0.

"Everyone's kind of edgy right now," said losing manager Matt Walbeck, "but nothing a couple of wins wouldn't cure."
