BOSTON -- Melky Cabrera is on the way to provide reinforcements, but the Kansas City Royals did just fine without him against the Boston Red Sox on Sunday afternoon.
Alex Gordon and Alcides Escobar combined to drive in all five of the Royals' runs, with Gordon smashing a go-ahead triple in the eighth to cap a four-run inning as Kansas City rallied for a 5-3 win at Fenway Park.
"Just kind of typical of our success, you know, the big guys are getting on base and then Esky and Gordy ... come up with huge hits," Royals manager Ned Yost said after his team's 10th win in the last 11 games.
