Cubs beat Royals with help of disputed bunt in 9th
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Tony Campana hit a disputed bunt single and scored the go-ahead run on an error in the ninth inning to help the Chicago Cubs beat the Kansas City Royals 6-4 Friday night.
With one out, Campana popped up a bunt against Aaron Crow (2-1) that Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas appeared to catch at his shoetops. Plate umpire Jeff Kellogg ruled that it hit the grass and Campana was safe at first.
He went to third on D.J. LeMahieu's single to right and came home when Kosuke Fukudome hit a bouncer that went off the glove of second baseman Chris Getz for an error. Starlin Castro added an RBI single that helped send the Royals to their sixth straight loss.
Sean Marshall (4-2) pitched a perfect eighth.
