A’s complete sweep of Royals with dominating 14-5 win

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Stephen Vogt drove in five runs, Ryon Healy hit a mammoth three-run homer and the Oakland Athletics routed the Kansas City Royals 14-5 on Thursday night.

The A’s continued to wreak havoc on the Royals’ diminishing playoff chances, sweeping a four-game road series at Kansas City for the first time in their history. The A’s outscored the Royals 43-12, the largest Oakland run differential in a four-game series in franchise history.

Vogt had a two-run double in a five-run third, walked with the bases loaded in the fourth and hit a two-run homer in the sixth. The five RBIs matched a career high.
