KANSAS CITY, Mo., June 12 (UPI) -- Lorenzo Cain tied the score with a late homer and Eric Hosmer sent home the deciding run with a 10th-inning hit Wednesday in Kansas City's 3-2 win over Detroit.

The Royals, trailing 2-0 and facing Tigers closer Jose Valverde in the bottom of the ninth, were down to their last strike when Cain extended the contest by belting a two-run homer over the left-center field fence.

Then in the 10th, Miguel Tejada led off with a single against Phil Coke (0-4) and went to second on Alcides Escobar's sacrifice bunt.

After Alex Gordon grounded out, Hosmer sent a sharp grounder up the middle for the game-ending blow.

Greg Holland (2-1) earned the victory for the Royals, who took 2-of-3 from the Tigers.

Prince Fielder and Brayan Pena each went 2-for-4 with an RBI for American League Central-leading Detroit.

Tigers starter Justin Verlander hurled seven shutout innings, yielding just three hits and two walks while striking out eight, but ended with a no-decision.
