How the Royals took a series from the best team in baseball

The people who play this game for a living will tell you that baseball is about pitching and defense. You can do everything else right, but if you don’t pitch well, you’re still going to lose a lot of games. That’s why you couldn’t find anyone in the Royals clubhouse who was upset about the Wil Myers trade. The players think pitching is the name of the game, and this series against the Oakland A’s — the best team in baseball — shows why.
