CHICAGO — Hunter Dozier’s 10th-inning home run on a 2-0 pitch lifted the Royals to their first road win of the season and avoided a series sweep at the hands of the Chicago White Sox on a wild Wednesday afternoon.

Dozier’s fifth home run of the season provided the margin of victory in a game between division rivals marked by emotion, ejections, injury and anxiety. The extra-inning affair concluded with the Royals grabbing a 4-3 win on their way out of town in front of an announced 14,358 at Guaranteed Rate Field.

“It brought some emotion to the game for both teams, a little extra incentive to win,” Dozier said of the benches clearing in the sixth inning. “A little emotion is good for the game.”
