Moscoso Takes No-Hit Bid Into 8th, A's Beat Royals
OAKLAND, CA (AP) -- Guillermo Moscoso held Kansas City hitless until rookie Salvador Perez singled with two outs in the eighth inning, and the Oakland Athletics beat the Royals 7-0 Wednesday.
Moscoso (8-8) wound up allowing two hits in 8 2-3 innings. He walked one and struck out four.
Moscoso set an Oakland record by retiring 30 consecutive hitters -- the final 13 against Seattle last Friday and the first 17 against the Royals. He walked Kansas City's Alcides Escobar with two outs in the sixth.
Perez broke up the no-hit bid by lining a clean, opposite-field field single to right.
