The Kansas City Royals kicked off their final road trip of the season with a comeback win, beating the Oakland Athetics 6-5. The game ended at 12:42 a.m. Tuesday for those listening to the game on Sports Radio KFH 1240AM 97.5FM.

KC was down 4-1 in the 2nd inning, but outscored the A's 5-1 during the final six innings. Oakland, which leads the wild-card race in the American League, saw its six-game winning streak come to an end.

Jorge Soler of the Royals hit his 45th home run of the season, tying him with Mike Trout of the Anaheim Angels for the American League lead.

The Royals still trailed entering the ninth inning, but they got a game-tying home run from centerfielder Brett Phillips, who was batting .157 at the time. An rbi-double later in the inning scoring Whit Merrifield gave the Royals their go-ahead run.

It was the 1,200th win for Royals manager Ned Yost.
