The most exciting moment of the Royals' 2013 campaign came from a screw-up. In the fifth inning of the Royals' September 18 game against the Cleveland Indians, Emilio Bonifacio missed a hit-and-run sign with runners on the corners. Bonifacio's brain fart left Alex Gordon stranded between first and second bases. While Indians infielders chased after Gordon to tag him out, Alcides Escobar started inching from third base toward home plate. Suddenly, the Indians tried to pick off Escobar, hurling the ball toward catcher Yan Gomes. Escobar looked doomed, but as Gomes tried to tag him out, Escobar somehow slid out of the catcher's path. Suddenly, it was Gomes who was stranded as Escobar reached home safely for a run. And for the moment keeping the Royals' playoffs hopes intact.
