Hosmer's Walk Off Single Sinks White Sox

Last updated on Friday, September 21, 2012

(Kansas City, MO) - Eric Hosmer’s RBI single with two out in the bottom of the ninth gave the Kansas City Royals a 4-3 comeback win over the Chicago White Sox.

The Sox built an early 3-0 lead with A-J Pierzynski driving in a run in the first with a single and Chicago scoring a pair of unearned runs in the second.

KC got on the board with Johnny Giavotella's two-run triple in the fifth and tied it on Billy Butler's RBI double in the sixth.

Butler led off the bottom of the ninth with a single off Jesse Crain and was lifted for pinch-runner Jerome Dyson.

After Crain retired the next two batters, Dyson stole second and Crain intentionally walked Jeff Francoeur.

Matt Thornton relieved Crain and gave up Hosmer's game-winner.

The White Sox remain two games ahead of Detroit in the AL Central race as the Tigers lost at home to Oakland.
