MLB: Kansas City 6, Chicago White Sox 5 (10 innings)

May 5, 2013 at 6:11 PM

KANSAS CITY, Mo., May 5 (UPI) -- Alex Gordon doubled home Lorenzo Cain with the winning run in the 10th inning Sunday, rallying Kansas City over the Chicago White Sox 6-5.

The Royals were trailing 5-3 in the ninth when Billy Butler's two-out, two-run double against White Sox closer Addison Reed forged a tie.

Then in the 10th, Cain led off with a single off Brian Omogrosso (0-1), and, after Mike Moustakas struck out, stole second and went to third on Jeff Francoeur's groundout.

Chris Getz was intentionally walked and George Kottaras drew an unintentional base-on-balls to load the bases.

That brought up Gordon, who smashed pitch over the glove of right-fielder Alex Rios as the Royals clinched their rain-delayed three-game series with a seventh win in eight contests.

The rally made a winner of Greg Holland (1-1), who tossed a scoreless top of the 10th.

Rios cracked a two-run homer for the Chisox.
