The Royals nearly won Wednesday’s game against the Minnesota Twins in the 10th inning.

With runners on the corners and one out, Lorenzo Cain hit a ball that pitcher Blaine Bowyer snagged. His throw to the plate was non-chalant and forced catcher Kurt Suzuki to grab the ball on the third-base line.

Jarrod Dyson sped home and into Suzuki, who tagged Dyson. Dyson and the Royals argued that Dyson didn’t have a path to the plate, but replay upheld that Suzuki had no choice when grabbing the throw.
