After the Kansas City Royals loaded the bases with one out, Cubs catcher David Ross scored Kris Bryant for his first game-winning hit of the season.

The comeback Cubs had their chance to end the game two batters before Ross. With outfielder Dexter Fowler at second base, first baseman Anthony Rizzo hit a single to left field.

Royals left fielder Alex Gordon made a perfect throw to get Fowler out at home. The play was so close, the umpires had to review the play.

The umpires couldn’t find any conclusive evidence to overturn the call, but in the end, it didn’t matter. The Cubs snapped a two-game losing streak with a 2-1 win over the Royals.
