Eric Hosmer


BOSTON (AP) Eric Hosmer doubled to lead off the 14th inning and scored when Mike Aviles bunted the ball over the head of charging first baseman Adrian Gonzalez to give the Kansas City Royals a 3-1 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Monday night. Louis Coleman (1-2) went two innings and twice pitching out of jams. Joakim Soria struck out three in the bottom of the 14th to earn his 18th save and send Boston to just its fourth loss in 21 games. The Red Sox threatened to score five times in the last six innings, but the Royals made their best chance count. Hosmer doubled off Randy Williams (0-1) to start the 14th.
