Royals bash 4 HRs off German before Yanks rally back but lose in the 10th

A six-run lead and an apparent cruise-control victory for the Royals on Sunday suddenly went awry when a rare error by shortstop Adalberto Mondesi led to three unearned runs in the sixth inning and when closer Ian Kennedy gave up four hits and three runs in the ninth trying to protect a three-run lead.

The Royals, though, came away with a dramatic, 8-7, walk-off victory in the 10th inning when Billy Hamilton walked, stole second base, and scored on Whit Merrifield’s bad-hop single off third baseman Gio Urshela with two outs.
