Gordon homers in 10th to give Royals 7-6 win over Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Alex Gordon homered on the first pitch of the 10th inning, and the Kansas City Royals beat the Texas Rangers 7-6 Tuesday night.

Gordon greeted reliever Stolmy Pimentel (0-1) by pulling a ball into the seats down the right-field line.

Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas also homered for the AL Central leaders, who had gone ahead on an RBI groundout by Lorenzo Cain in the ninth. Adrian Beltre's two-out RBI single in the bottom half tied the game again.

After Greg Holland (1-0) took over in the ninth and blew his first save in seven chances this year, the right-hander returned to throw a perfect 10th. It was his first outing this season that lasted more than one inning.

    Well, the National Champs are now turning their focus to recruiting.

If the Panthers are able to beat Gruver on Wednesday, They will be back to back State Champions, a feat no other Mart football team has been able to claim.  But to do so, Mart will have to beat a tough, hard-nosed team from up in the panhandle.  Both teams are 14-1 and went undefeated in district. But now, none of that matters. It's all about who can go 1-0 this week to be named State Champions.  The Pan...More >>
