KANSAS CITY -- The Yankees won a challenge and gained a run against the Royals on Monday night.

The final run of New York's four-run seventh came on a sacrifice fly by Brian McCann, but that's not initially how it was ruled.

With the Yankees leading, 5-1, and one out and runners on the corners, McCann skied a fly ball to right fielder Lorenzo Cain. Jacoby Ellsbury tagged from third, Cain fired home and home-plate umpire ruled that Royals catcher Salvador Perez tagged out Ellsbury for the third out.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi challenged, and replay officials in New York overturned the call.
