Gordon’s single in 10th lifts KC over White Sox

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Alex Gordon hit an RBI single with two outs in the 10th inning Sunday and the Kansas City Royals rallied past the Chicago White Sox 6-5.

Billy Butler’s two-out, two-run double in the ninth tied it for Kansas City.

Lorenzo Cain led off the 10th with his third hit and stole second with one out. With two outs, Chris Getz was intentionally walked and George Kottaras then walked on five pitches, loading the bases for Gordon.

Gordon singled on the first pitch from rookie Brian Omogrosso (0-1), who made his first appearance since being called up Wednesday.

Greg Holland (1-1) worked a perfect 10th.
