Once, he said he was even ambushed at gunpoint by authorities who thought he was the suspect, Tully recalled.

"We showed them that we have fight in us, and I think they knew that already," said Billy Butler, whose RBI single in the sixth inning gave the Royals a 3-2 lead. "But we stepped up big there as a team, and that gave us some confidence."
