Salvador Perez went 1-for-6 with an RBI during the Royals' 9-8 win over the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday night.

Perez had a brutal game at the plate. But all's well that ends well, no? He drove in the final run of the game on a Jason Hammel slider that was well off the plate (he had to make contract with one eventually!). Perez appeared in 150 games behind the plate this season which appears to have taken a toll on the young catcher at the plate.

Eric Hosmer went 3-for-4 with two walks, a triple, an RBI and two runs scored during the Royals 9-8 win over the A's on Tuesday night.

Hosmer was a pest all night, fouling off pitches left and right, and even diving headlong into first base on what appeared to be an easy grounder to shortstop Jed Lowrie. It was his triple in the 12th inning that ultimately sealed Oakland's fate, another an elimination-game loss. He's rebounded quite nicely since returning from the disabled list and could finally come at the discount fantasy owners have been waiting years for now.

James Shields allowed four runs on five hits, striking out six and walking two over five innings during the Royals' 9-8 win over the Athletics on Tuesday night.

Like Jon Lester, Shields' performance was obfuscated by a poor relief appearance. Yordano Ventura allowed both of Shields' inherited runners to score in grand fashion, giving up a long home run to Athletics' DH Brandon Moss. He's likely to get the ball on Sunday when the ALDS series makes its way from Anaheim to Kansas City.

Sean Doolittle allowed one run on two hits, but blew the save during Tuesday night's 8-9 Wild Card loss to the Royals.

Doolittle pitched well, but a bloop single followed by a stolen base, bunt and sac fly were enough to tie the game for the Royals in the bottom of the ninth. He's emerged as one of the game's best closers and should be off the board just a few rounds after the uber-elite guys are gone next spring.

Josh Reddick went 2-for-4 with two walks and two runs scored during the A's 9-8 loss to the Royals on Tuesday night.

Reddick ends the season with yet another good night at the plate. He'd been the A's hottest hitter over the final month and it was nice to see him carry it over into the final game of the season. He's a late-round sleeper heading into the 2015 season.

Brandon Moss went 2-for-5 with two home runs, five RBI and a walk during the A's 8-9 loss to the Royals on Tuesday night.

Moss's two home runs seemed like they would be the difference for the A's, who blew four different leads in the game. He did everything in his power -- pun intended -- to advance his team to the ALDS, but unfortunately the Royals' small-ball was too much to handle for the A's batteries.

Jon Lester allowed six runs on eight hits while striking out five and walking two over 7.1 innings during the A's 8-9 loss to the Royals on Tuesday night.

The A's score 7 runs with Lester on the mound, in the eight inning... and lose? You couldn't write that one up. Lester didn't pitch as poorly as the boxscore suggests, as his last two runs were let in by A's set-up man Luke Gregerson. All in all, it was a wonderful season for Lester who will be cheered up by the $100 + million paycheck he'll receive this winter.

Paul Molitor will interview to replace Ron Gardenhire as Twins' manager.

This doesn't come as much of a surprise considering that Molitor finished his career with the Twins and is a popular figure in Minnesota. Though there haven't been any other names linked to the Twins' managerial opening, you have to think that Molitor is the frontrunner at this point. Don't be surprised if Minnesota fills their vacancy relatively soon.

Danny Hultzen (rotator cuff) threw well in his third Instructional League outing in the last few weeks on Tuesday and now will be shut down until next spring.

Once a top prospect, Hultzen is continuing to rehab from surgery on a torn labrum and rotator cuff. The Mariners are playing it safe by not letting him pitch in the Arizona Fall League, but it is probably for the better. He will be treated with kid gloves next spring, but it is certainly possible that we could see him with Seattle in the latter part of the 2015 season.

 Josh Hamilton says he's feeling better and is ready for the playoffs later this week. "I feel good, just like yesterday. I ran, threw, faced a lot of pitching, so I'm good to go," Hamilton said.

The Angels are certainly a powerhouse, but they are even better when Hamilton is healthy and productive. Hamilton is feeling better, but we also know how fragile he is. If he is feeling pain he is probably going to try to play through it, but that could be a detriment to his overall play. He has another couple of days before he has to get into game action so hopefully he's almost 100 percent by the time Thursday night rolls around.
