OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Matt Olson had never hit a ball to the second level of elevated bleachers, even in batting practice.
He sure found a timely moment to accomplish the feat, hitting a tying homer leading off the seventh before Seth Brown hit a go-ahead double two batters later, leading the Oakland Athletics past the Kansas City Royals 2-1 on Tuesday night.
That was one of my better swings, Olson said with a smile, offering little more explanation except that the ball doesnt usually carry like that at night.
