The Royals overcame five ejections to beat the A's 4-2 Sunday behind Kendrys Morales' tie-breaking, two-run double in a three-run eighth inning.
Royals manager Ned Yost and pitching coach Dave Eiland were ejected in the first inning after Lorenzo Cain was hit by a Scott Kazmir pitch and both teams were issued a warning by plate umpire Greg Gibson. After the warning was issued Sunday, Yost came out to argue and was immediately ejected by Gibson.
In the eighth inning, Royals reliever Kelvin Herrera was tossed after throwing behind Brett Lawrie. Bench coach Don Wakamatsu, who was acting as manager after Yost's ejection, also ejected during the argument along with injured Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar.
