KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Royals may be angry, but that is not converting into many September victories.Yonder Alonso and Marcus Semien hit two-run doubles as the Oakland Athletics beat Kansas City 8-0 for the third straight game on Wednesday night to further ruin the Royals postseason chances.The 2015 World Series champion Royals are five games out in the American League wild card with 17 games left and would have to climb over five teams.I think our guys were really fired up coming into today, Royals manager Ned Yost said. There was some anger in that locker room today before the game, so I dont feel any deflation. Guys are upset that we lost those games. Theyre not pointing any fingers because they know that we win as a team and lose as a team. Theyre not happy with it.The Royals, who have lost seven of their past eight home games, did not have a runner reach third base. A nine-game winning streak in August propelled the Royals back in the playoff hunt, but the recent losses have all but removed them from returning to the postseason for the third straight year.Its just been frustrating, said Eric Hosmer, who had two of the Royals hits. But we have no choice but to come in here and keep pushing, keep working and see if we can turn it around. Honestly, thats whats so frustrating about it is guys are coming in and doing what they need to do and its just not happening on the field.You cant really point the finger. You cant blame anybody. Everyones coming in, grinding, doing what they gotta do in trying to prepare themselves for the game. The games just tough on you sometimes and its extremely tough on us now.Alonsos two-run eighth inning laser pinch double Tuesday lifted the As to victory. Alonsos broken-bat double in the first scored Danny Valencia and Stephen Vogt.As rookie left-hander Sean Manaea (5-9) picked up his first career road victory, retiring 13 of the final 14 batters he faced in five scoreless innings, striking out five and walking one. Manaea, who had not pitched since Aug. 29 when he left in the fourth inning with a strained left rhomboid, was removed after 67 pitches. The As acquired Manaea from the Royals in July 2015 as part of the Ben Zobrist trade.Yordano Ventura (10-11) threw 39 pitches, 28 after two outs, in a three-run third. Ventura retired the first two batters and then gave up five consecutive hits, two of them doubles. Semiens double scored Alonso and Ryon Healy. Bruce Maxwells single scored Semien.I was trying to be a little too fine and I was falling behind in the count, Ventura said through an interpreter.Ventura was pulled after 4 1/3 innings, giving up five runs on seven hits, four walks, a hit batter and two wild pitches. He has yielded 17 hits and nine runs in 11 1/3 innings in losing his past two starts.Khris Davis delivered a two-out two-run eighth inning single and scored on Healys single to cap off the scoring.Oakland relievers John Axford, Liam Hendriks and Chris Smith held the Royals to one single the final four innings. The As bullpen has restricted the Royals to one run and three hits over 12 1/3 innings in the first three games.Manaea did a great job of pitching, as did their whole staff, Yost said. You know, Ventura was out there competing his tail off. He just struggled to command the secondary stuff and his fastball.STICKING WITH SORIAWhile RHP Joakim Soria is 0-3 with three blown saves and a 9.00 ERA in seven games since August 30, Royals manager Ned Yost said he is not forsaking him. Jacks had great outings and hes had bad outings, Yost said. Yeah, hes had a rough year. The thing that is so puzzling to him is he feels good. Its just one of those things.FUENTES RELEASEDThe Royals asked for unconditional release waivers on Rey Fuentes, who was their opening day starting right fielder after hitting .386 in spring training. Fuentes hit .317 in 13 games and 44 plate-appearances with Kansas City. He spent most of the season with Triple-A Omaha, where he hit .254 and swiped 17 bases in 22 attempts.UP NEXTAthletics: RHP Daniel Mengden, who is 0-2 with a 10.57 ERA in two September starts, faces the Royals for the first time.Royals: RHP Edinson Volquez, who has won his past three decisions against the As, starts the series finale.

If West Coast fans thought gun recruit Sam Mitchell was good in 2012, they should have seen him the year before. Or a few years later.The former Hawthorn onballer this week added the AFLs greatest individual accolade to his decorated resume, named co-Brownlow Medallist alongside Richmond captain Trent Cotchin, after Essendons Jobe Watson was stripped of the award.Cotchin, who also earned his sole All-Australian selection and was named the AFL coaches associations player of the year in 2012, looks back on it as his best season. Not so Mitchell.Its awkward to say probably not but I dont think so, Mitchell said with a grin on Thursday.I had a strong season, obviously Im sitting here (as a Brownlow Medallist) but probably the year before I was slightly better.I was ineligible (through suspension) and Dane Swan polled 34, which was the most ever at that stage. I think Ive been reasonably consistent over those years.And he has. Mitchell was Hawthorns leading Brownlow vote-getter or runner-up in all but one of the past 10 years - the sole exception being 2014, when he missed nine weeks with a hamstring injury.He polled a caareer-high 30 votes when he fell short to Swan in 2011 and was arguably just as good in 2015, racking up 26 votes as the Hawks capped off their premiership three-peat.ddddddddddddAt 34, Mitchell will be the third-oldest active player in the AFL next season behind Western Bulldogs stalwarts Bob Murphy and Matthew Boyd.As with all players, father time is bound to catch up eventually.But Mitchells class and tactical nous suggest the Eagles have plenty to look forward to when he links up with his new teammates later this month.He and Cotchin will receive their Brownlow medals in a private ceremony next month and Mitchell says hes keen for the turmoil surrounding the 2012 award to be put to rest.Theres a lot of things that have happened in the past that have got very little to do with us, he said.But when Ive got my son sitting there and I get a phone call saying youre a Brownlow Medallist, Id be lying if I (said) it was not a joyful experience to share that with my family right at that point.
