Sox Fall To Royals In Extra Innings On Wild Pitch

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Sergio Santos threw a wild pitch in the 11th inning that allowed Alex Gordon to score, giving the Kansas City Royals a 2-1 victory Wednesday night.

Billy Butler swung at a pitch in the dirt that got away from catcher A.J. Pierzynski and Gordon came home and scored with a headfirst slide to give the Royals their 10th win in the final at-bat.

Chris Sale (2-1) retired the first two batters before walking Gordon, who went to third on Mitch Maier’s single. Santos then replaced Sale.

Aaron Crow (3-2) worked two scoreless innings, allowing one hit, to pick up the victory.
