MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- After a moment of silence to honor victims of a bridge collapse near the Metrodome, the Kansas City Royals defeated the Minnesota Twins 5-3 in 10 innings Wednesday night.

Thursday's game between the teams was called off, but the Twins decided to go ahead with this one instead of sending about 25,000 fans back out onto the congested highways.

Alex Gordon hit a two-run homer in the 10th inning as the Royals won hours after manager Buddy Bell announced he will resign after the season.

The Twins had their four-game winning streak snapped.

Kansas City tied the game in the eighth inning when Matt Guerrier's wild pitch allowed pinch-runner Emil Brown to score.
