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.
