Moustakas homers in 7-run fourth inning that helps lift Royals over Mariners 8-2
SEATTLE (AP) — Mike Moustakas hit a two-run home run and Omar Infante had three-run double in a seven-run fourth inning and the Kansas City Royals beat the Seattle Mariners 8-2 on Wednesday night.
Alcides Escobar opened the fourth with a single to right off Roenis Elias (4-5), who had retired the first nine batters. Moustakas followed with his seventh homer over the right-field wall.
The Royals would score five more, all with two outs. Infante unloaded the bases with his double to left, then Jarrod Dyson and Escobar each followed with left-field RBI doubles.
Escobar had three hits – two in the fourth – and scored twice. Moustakas had three hits and two RBI.
Ryan Madson (1-1) worked 1-plus inning of hitless relief for the win.
