|Moustakas' RBI Single Lifts Royals Over White Sox
|CHICAGO (AP) _ Mike Moustakas stroked a go-ahead single in the 10th inning to lift the Kansas City Royals to a 2-1 win over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday.
The Royals plated both their runs with two outs in the 10th off Brett Myers (2-3), the seventh of eight White Sox pitchers in the game.
The rally started after Alcides Escobar was thrown out, leaving the bases empty and two outs. Myers walked Billy Butler, who was replaced by pinch runner Jarrod Dyson. Salvador Perez, Moustakas and Jeff Francoeur then hit consecutive singles, the last two driving in runs.
Kelvin Herrera (3-2) got the win after preserving a scoreless tie in the ninth by getting Alex Rios to hit into a double play with the bases loaded.
