ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Yuniesky Betancourt hit a two-run homer with
two outs in the 15th inning, lifting the Kansas City Royals a 5-3
win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday.
Betancourt had put the Royals ahead in the 14th with an RBI
double but closer Jonathan Broxton (1-1) failed to hold the lead.
Down to their last strike in the ninth, Billy Butler homered for
the Royals to tie it.
Jarrod Dyson began 15th inning with a bunt single off St. Louis
reliever Eduardo Sanchez (0-1). Dyson was sacrificed to second and,
after an out, Betancourt hit an 0-1 pitch into the Royals' bullpen.
