Mike Moustakas’ 13th-inning home run gave the Kansas City Royals a three-out-of-four series win with a 7-6 victory over the Seattle Mariners.
The Royals had a 6-5 lead going into the ninth, but a Raul Ibañez game-tying homer off of Greg Holland extended the contest. Alex Gordon also homered for the Royals, who now enter their penultimate series against division foe Detroit.
KC heads into the series eight back in the division and 4.5 games back in the Wild Card race. James Shields faces Anibal Sanchez in the opener Friday night.
