Royals Vs. White Sox Final Score: KC Edges Chicago In 10 Innings, 2-1

Mike Moustakas and Jeff Francoeur hit RBI singles in the top of the 10th inning to lead the Kansas City Royals to a 2-1 win over the Chicago White Sox. Moustakas broke open a scoreless tie and Francoeur provided necessary insurance, as the White Sox scored a run of their own in the bottom of the 10th. Reliever Kelvin Herrera earned his third win of the season for the Royals, and even though it was a bit dicey, Greg Holland picked up his 13th save.

Starter Jeremy Guthrie pitched well for Kansas City but was forced to take a no-decision. The righty allowed just six hits in eight innings and struck out four. Hector Santiago started for Chicago and gave up three hits and three walks in four innings. He struck out eight.

After the Royals rallied for two two-out runs in the top of the 10th, the White Sox made a rally of their own in the bottom of the inning. Gordon Beckham hit a one-out RBI double to pull Chicago within a run. With the potential tying run at third and winning run at second, Alejandro De Aza and Ray Olmedo both struck out swinging.
