After falling behind 6-2 in the 7th inning after back-to-back homers by Houston, the Kansas City Royals battled back to knot up the ALDS at 2-2 and to send the series back to Kansas City for game five.

The comeback mounted in the 10th inning as the Royals strung together five runs the eighth to take a 7-6 lead.

Then, after Wade Davis pitched a sterling bottom of the 8th inning, Eric Hosmer jacked a two-run homer out of Minute Maid Park in Houston to give the Royals a 9-6 lead.

Davis would return in the bottom of the ninth and only allow on hit as he close out the game.

The Royals and the Astros play the rubber match of the series Wednesday at 7.
