(TSX / STATS) -- TORONTO -- It was too little, too late, as it turned out for the Kansas City Royals, but it proved to be an historic moment when Alex Gordon homered in the eighth inning Tuesday night.

It was the 5,694th home run hit in the majors this season, passing the single-season record set in 2000.

The blast provided the final run of the game as the Royals fell 5-2 to the Toronto Blue Jays for their third loss in a row.
