Royals take advantage of Detroit's sloppy defense


DETROIT – Josh Anderson scored the go-ahead run in the 10th inning on third baseman Ryan Raburn's third error of the game, lifting the Kansas City Royals to a 3-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday.

With one out in the 10th, Anderson reached on a dribbler down the third-base line and David DeJesus followed with a grounder through Raburn's legs. Both runners moved up on Willie Bloomquist's comebacker to Fernando Rodney (2-3).

Billy Butler then hit a grounder down the line. Raburn fielded it, but made a wild throw to first for his second error of the inning, allowing Anderson to scamper home.

Joakim Soria (3-0) threw two scoreless innings to get the win.
