|Royals End 3-Game Marathon With White Sox With Victory
|KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Jason Kendall hit a game-ending single with two outs in the 10th inning, giving the Kansas City Royals a 3-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday in the teams' third extra-inning game in less than 24 hours.
Gregor Blanco walked with two outs and stole second and third before Kendall delivered the hit to left-center off Scott Linebrink (1-1).
The Royals and White Sox played three games totaling 9 hours, 32 minutes and 31 innings. They split a doubleheader Saturday night, the first game going 11 innings and the second 10, that did not end until 1:11 a.m. Sunday morning.
The last time the Royals played three consecutive extra-innings game was June 9-11, 2000, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
