OAKLAND DEFEATS ROYALS
Mon, 19 Jul 2010 07:17 PM EDT

The Oakland Athletics have really been coming around. The rest they got over the All Star game has paid off, and the team is winning again. Their most recent victory was against the Royals, an exciting matchup that ended up 9-6 after nine innings of play. Vegas odds.

Great batting combined with great control at the mound really set the Athletics apart on Sunday. They ran circles around the Royals who were struggling to pull ahead. Even though they faced the team that is tied for last in the AL, Kansas City just couldn’t do it.

Usually Oakland doesn’t go big on the home runs to win games, things were different on Sunday. Adam Rosales, Kevin Kouzmanoff and Jack Cust each nailed one.  Combined with great pitching from starter Vin Mazzaro, it proved to be an effective setup, the Athletics took a three game sweep against KC. Betting lines.

For the first time in a while, they have won five straight and 12 of 18 to even their record at 46-46. This is the first time they have been at .500 since June 15th. The Royals, in stark contrast, are on one of their longest losing streaks of the season, 5 games deep.

If the Athletics keep things going like this, they will certainly move out of last place in the AL. There is not much chance of them taking the division playoffs at this point, but they can definitely raise their status and improve their standing. All it will take is a bit of hard work, something Oakland is all too familiar with. Each of their victories have come hard fought, and the results of pushing with such intensity are starting to pay off. Sports scores.
