Merrifield singles in run in 10th, lifting Royals over Yanks

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Royals have been waiting to catch a few breaks. They got one Sunday.

Whit Merrifield got a fortunate hop on an RBI single in the 10th inning, and the Kansas City Royals beat the New York Yankees 8-7 despite blowing a six-run lead.

"I was saying better lucky than good," Merrifield said. "It just worked out for us today. The hop went our way."
