CHICAGO, July 28 (UPI) -- Alex Gordon smashed a go-ahead, two-run homer in the 12th inning Sunday and Kansas City outlasted the Chicago White Sox 4-2 for a series sweep.

With the score tied 2-2 in the 12th, Jarrod Dyson collected leadoff infield single against Donnie Veal (1-1), went to third on catcher Josh Phegley's throwing error and came home when Gordon belted a pitch off the top of the center field wall.

Aaron Crow (7-3) was credited with the win after pitching a scoreless 11th and Greg Holland overcame two hits in the bottom of the 12th to notch his 27th save as the Royals completed a three-game sweep and took a sixth straight overall.

David Lough and Miguel Tejada each contributed an RBI for Kansas City.

Adam Dunn smacked a solo homer for the White Sox, losers of six in seven games.
