Athletics-Royals Preview

(AP) -- The Oakland Athletics handed Kansas City its first home defeat, subduing the Royals' scorching offense.

Tempers might not be as easily suppressed in Sunday's finale, though, after the contentious events of the series' first two games.

Josh Reddick powered a five-run fourth with a three-run shot in Oakland's 5-0 win Saturday. Royals hurler Yordano Ventura plunked Brett Lawrie in the ensuing at-bat, spurring an ejection for Ventura and the emptying of benches, though no punches were thrown.
