KANSAS CITY, Mo., June 26 (UPI) -- Alex Gordon's one-out single in the 10th inning scored David Lough from second base Wednesday, giving Kansas City a 4-3 victory over Atlanta.

The Braves produced three runs to tie the game in the seventh and it remained deadlocked until the Royals staged a quick strike in the 10th.

Lough singled to open the inning against Alex Wood (0-2) and went to second on a sacrifice by Miguel Tejada.

Gordon then stroked a 1-1 pitch into left field for the game-winning hit.

Aaron Crow (4-3) worked the top of the 10th to get the win.

Gordon opened the scoring with a first-inning homer and the Royals came up with another run in the frame on an RBI single by Salvador Perez. Gordon also scored Kansas City's third run on a base hit by Billy Butler in the third.

Reed Johnson drove in the first Atlanta run with a single and he scored along with Andrelton Simmons on a single from Justin Upton.
