Royals hit disputed double play in 3-2 loss to Rays

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) A late comeback bid by the Kansas City Royals was stymied by a strange and disputed double play.

Batter Kendrys Morales was tagged out near the batter's box after a play at the plate to end the top of the eighth inning of the AL Central-leading Royals' 3-2 loss Sunday to the Tampa Bay Rays.

Down 3-2 with runners on first and third with one out, Morales hit a grounder that Rays first baseman James Loney fielded along the line in front of the base. Loney threw home where catcher Rene Rivera tagged out a sliding Ben Zobrist as he tried to advance from third.
