The Wildcats put the game on ice in the sixth with the long ball. Rusty Buckner hammered a pitch off the scoreboard in left for a 2-run shot, Spencer Rogers lifted a 3-run home run over the left field wall later in the inning and it’s 11-3.

Kyle Isbel drove in the go-ahead run with a single in the eighth inning, and the Kansas City Royals beat the Minnesota Twins 5-3 on Sunday.
Every time the Kansas City Chiefs needed a big play on Sunday, their magician under center produced the kind of mesmerizing moment that left the Cleveland Browns shaking their heads in awe and frustration.
There was Patrick Mahomes’ 75-yard touchdown pass to Tyreek Hill, where he lofted the ball deep downfield and his wide receiver made an incredible adjustment. The crucial throws that kept drives alive.
And ultimately, the touchdown pass to Travis Kelce that completed a comeback from a 12-point hole and gave Kansas City a 33-29 victory Sunday.
On the field, Mahomes finished with 337 yards passing and three touchdowns while running for a score. On the sideline, he helped to instill the confidence in a struggling Kansas City defense that it could make plays when it mattered down the stretch.
”You love his attitude because he always feels like we’re in it,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. ”He does such a great job with the guys around him. He’s a great communicator during tough times on the sideline.”
