Kansas City, MO (Sports Network) - Alex Gordon hit the game-winning single in
the bottom of the 10th inning as the Kansas City Royals edged the Chicago
White Sox, 6-5, in the middle test of a three-game series.
With two outs and the bases loaded, Gordon took the first pitch off Brian
Omogrosso (0-1) and ripped it deep into right, scoring Lorenzo Cain and giving
his team the victory.
Gordon and Billy Butler had two RBI apiece, while Alcides Escobar and Miguel
Tejada each drove in one run to help the Royals even the series.
Kansas City starter Wade Davis allowed just one run on five hits and three
walks, but needed 102 pitches in his six-inning outing. Greg Holland (1-1)
pitched a perfect top of the 10th to pick up the win.
Alejandro De Aza had a two-run double for Chicago in the seventh inning and
later scored on a wild pitch, while Alex Rios knocked a solo homer and also
drove in two runs for the White Sox, who saw starter Jose Quintana give up
three runs on six hits and two walks over five frames.
