The last homestand for the Kansas City Royals proved frustrating. In the heat of a playoff race in which the Royals were on the outside looking in, the club's sloppy defense cost it a September 17 contest against the Cleveland Indians. Four days later, the bats went silent in a critical tilt against the Texas Rangers. But those miscues were rendered minor details for a packed crowd at the Royals' final home game on September 22. A pitchers' duel with the Rangers led to a scoreless deadlock and extra innings. With two outs, a full count and the bases loaded in the bottom of the 10th inning, Justin Maxwell launched a belt-high fastball deep to left field and easily over the outfield wall, securing the troubled franchise's second winning season in 20 years.
