accidentally published story about the Royals' losing

Life Comes Next Moment: Royals move on in Wild fashion
Wednesday October 1st, 2014

Wednesday night's back and forth battle in the first game of the postseason caused a headache for beat writers trying to get their game stories finished on deadline, as evidenced by publishing a story about the Kansas City Royals failed rally attempt despite the team's 9-8 victory.

The website quickly published the proper version of the story, in which the team rallies in the 12th inning to win its first playoff game in 24 years, but not before someone grabbed a screenshot of the erroneous article.

At least Oakland fan's can just read the article over and over until spring training 2015.
