    KANSAS CITY, Mo. Red Schoendienst Jersey . -- Royals catcher Salvador Perez spent Monday evening celebrating the birth of his baby boy.It beat watching his team getting trounced by Oakland.Khris Davis and Marcus Semien hit three-run homers, the Athletics matched a season high with 17 hits while drawing 10 walks, and Oakland rolled to a 16-3 victory in their series opener.Not even Perez would have made a difference in this one.Kansas City starter Dillon Gee (6-8) was battered for five runs on five hits and four walks in 3 1/3 innings, though he wasnt the only pitcher to melt down. He was followed by three relievers in a span of four batters in the fourth inning, when the As marched nine to the plate and scored three times.When youre out there trying to find something in a big league game against big league hitters, it makes it real tough, Gee said. They scored a lot of runs, but its just one game.Daniel Coulombe (3-1) earned the win in relief of Ross Detwiler, though it was the Oakland offense that led the way. The As scored their most runs this season for their largest margin of victory.These games are easy to turn the page, a lot tougher is losing a one-run game, Royals manager Ned Yost said. We just got beat. We didnt play good, we didnt pitch good and we got beat.It was a potentially crippling loss for Kansas City (74-69), which began the day four back of the final wild-card spot with 20 games remaining. The Royals were hoping an eight-game stand against lowly Oakland and the scuffling White Sox would allow them to make up some ground.There are still five teams they must leap in the wild-card race.Theres not much to say, Yost said. Its just one of those nights.By the end, everybody in the As starting lineup had a hit. Stephen Vogt was 3 for 3 with two walks and two RBI, while Joey Wendle, Arismendy Alcantara and Ryon Healy drove also drove in two apiece.We were swinging at a lot of good pitches, said the As Brett Eibner, who began the season with Kansas City. We swung at pitches we want to hit and when you do that, the runs seem to pile up.Davis delivered the first big blow in the third inning when he splashed his 36th homer into the fountains in left field, a shot estimated at 447 feet.When the Royals matched him with three runs in the bottom half, the As bounced right back to score three more: Bruce Maxwell and Eibner opened the fourth with back-to-back singles, Joey Wendle hit a sacrifice fly, and the As churned out four hits and two walks in taking a 6-3 lead.It was 8-3 when Semien went deep in the sixth, and Oakland merely piled on from there.Its great to have a game like that, As manager Bob Melvin said. For a team that struggles to score runs, its nice to have a positive mood in the dugout.BIG LEAGUE DEBUTSRoyals OF Hunter Dozier and As INF Renato Nunez and OF/INF Matt Olson made their major league debuts. Nunez and Olson were brought up from Triple-A Nashville prior to the game, with Olson taking the spot of departed DH Billy Butler on the 40-man roster.In Olsons case his parents were here, Melvin said, so it was nice to get him in the game.SALVYS BABY BOYPerez was scratched from the starting lineup a couple hours before first pitch after his fiance gave birth. His name is Johan Salvador and the Royals said mother and baby are doing well.TRAINERS ROOMRoyals RHP Kris Medlen (right rotator cuff inflammation) will not return this season, manager Ned Yost said. LHP Jason Vargas (Tommy John surgery) is also unlikely to pitch for Kansas City this season after making three rehab outings for Triple-A Omaha.UP NEXTRHP Jharel Cotton makes his second career start for the As after beating the Angels in his debut last week.
