Royals Rally Late to Beat Astros 9-6 and Even ALDS

HOUSTON (AP) — The Kansas City Royals rallied for five runs in the eighth inning to beat Houston 9-6 Monday and force the AL Division playoff series to a decisive Game 5. Astros shortstop Carlos Correa homered twice, doubled, singled and drove in four runs in Game 4 of the ALDS. Houston took a 6-2 lead into the eighth, but an error keyed the Royals' comeback to even the series at two games apiece. Kansas City scored five times in the eighth after Correa's two-run error on a potential double-play grounder. The miscue allowed the Royals to tie the game before Alex Gordon added a tie-breaking grounder. Eric Hosmer belted a two-run homer in the ninth after lining an RBI single during the eighth-inning rally. The Royals are 9-1 in their last 10 elimination games after scoring seven times in their final two at-bats to beat the Astros. Late in the seventh inning, a tweet from the account of Texas Governor Greg Abbott congratulated the Astros on advancing to the AL Championship Series. But the defending AL champion Royals had other ideas. Game 5 will be back at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City on Wednesday night.
