Royals grab ALCS Game 3 lead on sacrifice fly


A leadoff single from Norichika Aoki, a one-out single from Eric Hosmer, and then an RBI sacrifice fly to deep left field by Billy Butler has given the Royals their first lead of this ALCS Game 3 at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. That all happened in the bottom of the sixth, and the home team is up 2-1 as the action moves to the top of the seventh.

In the top of the sixth inning, Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas made a tremendous catch in foul territory, falling into a dug-out field box to retire the Orioles’ Adam Jones. You can see the video at this link.
