Cabrera's Single Lifts KC Past White Sox
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Melky Cabrera's RBI single scored Chris Getz from second in the 12th inning Tuesday night, lifting Kansas City past the Chicago White Sox 7-6 and giving the Royals their fourth straight win in their final at-bat.

Chris Getz singled leading off and was sacrificed to second and then Cabrera connected of Tony Pena (0-1) for his third hit of the game. Jeremy Jeffress (1-0) got two outs for the win in Kansas City's first four-game winning streak since September 2009.

The Royals bullpen threw six shutout innings after the White Sox scored four in the first off Luke Hochevar and took a 6-4 lead in the sixth.
