1986 Season Replay: Royals Trip Red Sox in Extras


April 14, 1986

The Kansas City Royals took Boston pitcher Bruce Hurst's best shot and still were able to claim a win at Fenway Park. The final score had Kansas City getting past the Red Sox, 4-2. Hurst went 9 innings and allowed 2 earned runs, striking out 9.

Kansas City improves to 4-3 as they look to defend their championship. The Royals got a big at-bat from center fielder Willie Wilson. For the game, Wilson went 1 for 5. In the top of the 11th, with runners on 1st and 3rd, he stroked a run-scoring single. His 9th hit of the season gave Kansas City a 3-2 lead.

 "It takes a lot of things to win a ballgame," said Kansas City manager Dick Howser. "It's usually not just one thing."
