The A's couldn't push a single run across the plate on Friday night against the Royals and their division lead is now down to one game.
A's pitcher Sonny Gray made one mistake in seven strong innings. A fifth-inning home run by Royals' DH Raul Ibanez proved to be the difference.
By acquiring Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes from Boston, Billy Beane infused a championship pedigree to an already stacked first-place ballclub.
