The best game I ever saw: The Royals beat the Athletics

It’s 1:17 in the morning and I’m sitting here covered in champagne and beer, trying to figure out how to describe what I just witnessed. Half a dozen players asked me how I was going to write about that game. Longtime Royals scout Art Stewart wanted to know if I’d ever seen one like that. Eric Hosmer walked by and said: "Un-real." A dozen other players and coaches said they’d never seen anything like it. Then Jason Frasor said: "Why don’t you just say it was the best game you ever saw?" OK: the Royals played 12 innings, kept their playoff dreams alive, drove a crowd of over 40,000 people insane while beating the Athletics 9-8 in the best game I ever saw.
