CINCINNATI (AP) — Joey Votto doubled home the winning run in the 10th inning, and the Cincinnati Reds blew another late lead before rallying for a 6-5 victory over the Kansas City Royals.

The Royals tied it 5-5 in the eighth on Ryan McBroom’s pinch-hit, two-run homer off Amir Garrett, but they couldn’t keep their four-game winning streak going.

With a designated runner on second base in the 10th, Josh Staumont walked Nick Castellanos and Votto doubled off the wall in center.
