OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Matt Chapman homered leading off the eighth, moments after shortstop Marcus Semien’s defensive gem, and the Oakland Athletics beat the Kansas City Royals 3-2 on Sunday.

Stephen Piscotty and Jonathan Lucroy both drove in runs for the A’s, who squandered numerous scoring chances before Chapman came through with a solo home run off Royals reliever Jason Adam (0-1).

Blake Treinen (3-1) retired five batters to win following a strong start by left-hander Sean Manaea. Winless since May 14, Manaea allowed six hits and two runs over 7 1/3 innings and had six strikeouts with no walks.
