Terrance Gore scored the game-winning run in the Kansas City Royals' 3-2 victory against the Detroit Tigers.

Royals outfielder Terrance Gore arrived at third base ahead of the tag of Tigers third baseman Brandon Dixon. Still, there was a pregnant pause before Fox Sports Kansas City broadcaster Ryan Lefebvre would call Gore safe.

Gore, who came on as a pinch runner with one out in the bottom of the eighth inning of Tuesday night’s game against Detroit, sped into third base on a steal attempt. His momentum almost carried him off the base.

Almost.

Gore showed great agility to keep a foot on the bag and was safe. He then scored on a single by Cheslor Cuthbert and broke a 2-2 tie.

“How in the world did he stay on the bag?” Lefebvre asked.

Here is the play from FSKC:

After the game, Gore was asked how he stayed on the bag: “That’s a great question. Nobody knows. I don’t even know.”

While Gore was talking, fellow outfielder Billy Hamilton was shouting “No one knows!”
