KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Yonder Alonsos doubles are spoiling the Kansas City Royals postseason hopes.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.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.A totally different swing in a totally different situation, but it got the job done and thats what matters, Alonso said. In this game, sometimes youd rather by lucky than good. It worked out for me yesterday. Today was a new day and it worked out. The bat died a hero.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 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.The Royals, who have lost seven of their past eight home games, did not have a runner reach third base.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.
