Marathon men: Royals beat Cards 4-2 at 3:14 a.m. Friday after long rain delay

The Royals staged a remarkable, stunning ninth-inning rally Thursday night in George Brett’s first game as interim hitting coach, then rode out a 4-hour, 32-minute rain delay that threatened to wipe out the comeback before holding on for a 4-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals and ending an eight-game losing streak. The game ended at 3:14 a.m. Friday.
