Rallying Royals do it again

The Royals are proving that it's not how you start, it's how you finish that counts.

Kansas City again came from behind for its fourth consecutive victory in its final at-bat Tuesday, beating the White Sox 7-6 in 12 innings. It took the Royals 13 innings Sunday to top the Angels.

"As long as you win them, that's what counts," Royals manager Ned Yost said.

Luke Hochevar put the Royals in an early hole Tuesday.

The right-hander gave up four runs on 13 pitches to the first four White Sox batters, including a three-run homer by Paul Konerko that hit off the Royals' Hall of Fame building behind the left field bullpen.

While Melky Cabrera, who had three hits and three RBI, drove in Chris Getz with the winning run with a single with one out in the 12th, it was two-run homers by Alex Gordon and Billy Butler that allowed the Royals to send it into extra innings.

The Royals' longest winning streak last year was three games. They haven't had a winning streak of longer than four games since Sept. 7-11, 2009, when they won five in a row.
