Spoiler-role Royals seek repeat vs. A's

The visiting Kansas City Royals will take a celebratory mood to the field Tuesday night when they go for a second straight win over the playoff-contending Oakland Athletics.

The Royals (56-95) had reason to celebrate both before and after a 6-5 win over the A's (90-61) in the series opener Monday.

The night ended on an exciting note when Kansas City rallied for two runs in the top of the ninth inning off A's closer Liam Hendriks to turn what appeared headed for a 5-4 loss into a dramatic victory.
