Think you've seen everything?

A strange and ultimately disappointing first week for the Royals closed Wednesday afternoon when they saw a one-run lead slip away in the 12th inning in a 5-4 loss to the Oakland A's.

How it happened was, well, the sort of stuff that Ripley's usually catalogues.

Jonathan Broxton forced in the winning run by hitting Jonny Gomes with the bases loaded — after loading the bases by hitting Yeonis Cespedes with a pitch.

The A's scored their two runs without getting a hit.
