Major League Baseball: Royals 2, Twins 1
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Alcides Escobar was one of the least likely Kansas City Royals to belt a home run in extra innings.
The light-hitting shortstop had not gone deep in 140 at-bats, and his only long ball this season came on April 17.
Escobar, however, sent a drive to left field with two outs in the 14th inning Tuesday night to give the Royals a 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins.
