Tigers Walkoff Royals to Win Weekend Series
Brandon Dixon hit a three-run homer in the 10th inning to lift the Detroit Tigers over the Royals 5-2 at Comerica Park on Sunday in Major League Baseball action.
Dixon is with the big club because of a series of injuries and says his first career walkoff homer is an "unreal feeling."
"After yesterday (Saturday), it felt so good to come around third and see the whole team waiting for me at the plate," says Dixon. The Royals routed the Tigers 15-3.
Nicholas Castellanos started the 10th with an infield single off Ian Kennedy (0-1), and after Miguel Cabrera popped out, Niko Goodrum reached on another infield hit.
Ronny Rodriguez struck out, but Dixon hit a 1-2 curveball over the fence in right-centre field.
Buck Farmer (2-2) got the win after retiring the last batter in the top of the 10th.
The Tigers took two of three games against the Royals and get set to open a series against the Los Angeles Angels at Comerica Park starting Tuesday night.
