Pitching, defense kept Royals in this game

It took 12 innings, but pitching and defense kept the Royals in this game long enough for the offense to score the runs needed to sweep the series. Alex Gordon hit a two-run bomb in extra innings to give the Royals their final lead, but if not for another outstanding start by Bruce Chen, six shutout innings by the bullpen and Jarrod Dyson throwing a runner out at the plate in the tenth inning, Gordon wouldn’t have had the chance to be a hero.
