Canha hit in 11th, A's edge KC 1-0 to hold wild card lead

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Mark Canha knew it was just a matter of time before the right pitch would come. He waited, and his patience paid off.

Canha hit an RBI double with two outs in the 11th inning and the Oakland Athletics edged the Kansas City Royals 1-0 Wednesday to hold their lead atop the AL wild-card race.

The Athletics, who have won seven of eight, began the day two games ahead of Tampa Bay for the top wild-card spot. Cleveland was a half-game behind the Rays.
