KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Lorenzo Cains night was not going the way he wanted. He was hitless in his first six at-bats with three strikeouts. It all ended with his fifth career walk-off hit.Cains two-out single in the 14th inning scored Christian Colon from second base and the Kansas City Royals beat the Chicago White Sox 3-2 on Wednesday.I had been ready to go home for a while, Cain said. I was happy to get the hit. It was definitely a rough game up to that point. I came through for the boys. Its a very good feeling.Colon opened the inning with a single and Paulo Orlando sacrificed him to second. Cain laced a single to center to score Colon, ending the 4-hour, 34-minute game, the longest by the Royals this season.Dillon Gee (4-5), the eighth Kansas City pitcher, struck out three in two perfect innings to pick up the victory. Matt Albers (2-5) was charged with the loss.What a crazy game that was, Gee said. I was in the dugout the whole game.But when Chien-Ming Wang came in, the Royals were out of available bullpen arms. Thats when pitching coach Dave Eiland approached Gee and told him to put on his spikes and go to the bullpen. Gee was penciled in to start Saturday, but that is doubtful after this emergency appearance.Jarrod Dyson led off the 13th inning with a triple, but the Royals failed to get him home. Dan Jennings struck out the next three batters: Drew Butera, Alex Gordon and Alcides Escobar.Im sure everybody was thinking the game was over at that point, Cain said after Dysons triple.But it took another inning. Fourteen pitchers combined to throw 424 pitches. There were 25 hits and 25 runners stranded.After the triple, it seemed like Jennings reached back and got a little something extra, White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. Hopefully we could have gotten a little momentum out of that.Tim Anderson delivered a run-producing single with two outs in the 11th to give the White Sox a 2-1 lead, but closer David Robertson failed to hold it.Anderson, who had struck out four times, hit a soft liner over the head of first baseman Eric Hosmer to score Todd Frazier, who led off the inning with a single off Wang.Robertson, who has blown saves in the first two games of the series, walked Hosmer to lead off the bottom of the 11th. Dyson sacrificed him to second and Salvador Perezs double scored Hosmer.White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana limited the Royals to four hits and one run over 7 1/3 innings.It was a tough game, Quintana said. Thats one of the games you try to give fight all the game. The weather was bad (102 heat index for the first pitch). We just try to get quick outs, try to throw a good quality pitch. Its bad when you try everything and you lose.He was pulled after Orlandos double in the eighth inning. Nate Jones replaced him and on his first pitch yielded a run-producing double to Cheslor Cuthbert. It was Jones seventh blown save of the season.Royals right-hander Ian Kennedy, who has a 0.93 ERA in his past three starts, held the White Sox to one run and six hits over 6 1/3 innings. Kennedy is 0-3 with five no-decisions since a June 26 victory over Houston.The Royals have scored a total of nine runs while Kennedy was on the mound in his past eight starts.J.D. Shuck, who hit .083 over his previous eight games, homered on a 2-0 pitch in the third, the only run Kennedy allowed. That was the White Sox only extra-base hit along with 12 singles.Orlando had two outfield assists. He threw out Omar Narvaez at the plate in the seventh when he attempted to score from second onShucks single to center. In the ninth, pinch-runner Carlos Sanchez tried to take second on Tyler Saladinos fly out to deep right-center, but Orlando threw him out.QUICK EJECTIONWhite Sox pitching Don Cooper was ejected by plate umpire Pat Hoberg five pitches into the bottom of the first inning for arguing balls and strikes.HAWK ABSENTKen Harrelson, who is in his 32nd season in the White Sox television booth, will miss all six games of this Kansas City and Miami road trip due to illness.TRAINERS ROOMWhite Sox: INF Brett Lawrie (strained left hamstring) has resumed swinging a bat. He looks much better from where he was, Ventura said. Its another step in the right direction for him, but, we dont know exactly how thats going to go.Royals: LHP Mike Minor, who has not pitched in the majors since Sept. 23, 2014, with the Braves and had surgery in 2015 to repair a torn labrum, is rehabbing with Triple-A Omaha. He likely will not rejoin the Royals until September, when the hope is could make some starts.UP NEXTWhite Sox: RHP Miguel Gonzalez is 0-1 with a 3.65 ERA in two starts this season against the Royals.Royals: LHP Danny Duffy is 4-0 with a 3.67 ERA in nine home starts this season.

SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- Pro Bowl defensive tackle Kawann Short said he wont hold out while awaiting a new contract from the Carolina Panthers.Short reported to training camp on time Wednesday, the same day the Panthers announced they gave safety Kurt Coleman a three-year extension that runs through the 2019 season. Financial terms were not released.Short said hell play this season under his current deal if he doesnt receive a contract extension. The defending NFC champions begin practice Thursday night at Wofford College.Its not about the contract, its about helping this team, Short said. I love the Carolina Panthers. Hopefully things will get done.Short, entering the fourth and final year of his rookie contract, is set to cost $1.47 million under this years salary cap.He significantly outperformed that deal last season when he finished with 11 sacks and three forced fumbles and became the first defensive tackle to win NFC Defensive Player of the Month twice in a season. Short is expected to command a huge deal comparable to the five-year, $86 million contract the New York Jets gave to Muhammad Wilkerson and the six-year, $103 million deal the Philadelphia Eagles handed Fletcher Cox.Both deals averaged more than $17 million per season.Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman is hopeful a long-term deal can be worked out with Short.We are in conversations (with his agent) and as long as you are in conversation something good can happen, so well see, Gettleman said. Contracts will get done when they are supposed to.Short said hes happy to see interior defensive linemen collecting big money.Its like the point guard and center thing, Short said. You want to play point guard sometimes (when you are) a center. But big guys need love, too. To see big guys get rewarded like that is a blessing.But he said his focus right now is on football, not finances.While thhe Panthers are continuing to negotiate with Short, he wouldnt say if the two sides are close to reaching a deal.dddddddddddd.Its going to take time, but Im patient, Short said.When asked if he thinks a deal will get done by the end of training camp, Short replied: I dont know. Its hard to tell. If so, I will be happy for it. Last year was a great year for me, but I need to do even better this year.Coleman was rewarded Wednesday for his outstanding season.He led the Panthers and finished tied for third in the NFL with career-high seven interceptions in his first season in Carolina. He contributed to a team that ranked sixth in the NFL in total defense and led the NFL in interceptions (24), takeaways (39) and points off turnovers (148).Said Gettleman: Kurt is a pros pro and hes a great fit for us. He had a career year last year and does everything we ask. And he adds a veteran presence in the DB (defensive back) room.The 28-year-old Coleman finished third on the team with 103 tackles.When you go through situations you want whats best for your family and whats best for the team, and Im really excited, Coleman said. Im fortunate to be a part of this team for three more years.Wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin and linebacker Luke Kuechly are all go for training camp as expected, according to coach Ron Rivera. Cornerback Bene Benwikere has been placed on the PUP list but can be activated at any time.Overall, Rivera said he feels good about his team, although he knows the heat is on -- and hes not just talking about the 100 degree temperatures in Spartanburg.My feeling is we are the hunted, Rivera said. We are where a lot of people want to be.---Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys China Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
