Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Lorenzo Cain's bases-loaded walk in the 10th inning scored Alex Gordon with the deciding run, as Kansas City took a 5-4 decision over Boston in the back end of a doubleheader from Fenway Park.

George Kottaras, Gordon and Billy Butler each slugged a solo homer for the Royals, who swept both ends of the twinbill, following a 4-2 decision in the opener.

Kelvin Herrera (2-2) fanned three and walked one while allowing one hit in two scoreless relief frames. Greg Holland earned his fifth save by turning in a perfect bottom of the 10th.

Mike Napoli homered among his three hits and drove in two runs for the Red Sox, who had won seven in a row prior to Sunday. Dustin Pedroia added two hits and an RBI in defeat.

Andrew Miller (0-1) gave up the lead run in his lone frame on the hill.
