Royals Rally To End 4 Game Slide

KSAL Sports - May 21, 2013 11:18 am

HOUSTON (AP) – Mike Moustakas tied it with an RBI single before George Kottaras walked with the bases loaded to drive in the go ahead run in a four run eighth inning, and the Kansas City Royals rallied for a 7-3 win over the Houston Astros Tuesday night to end a four game skid.

The Royals trailed 3-0 and couldn’t get much going offensively until the seventh when they cut the lead to one on RBI singles by Alcides Escobar and David Lough.

Eric Hosmer chased Wesley Wright in the eighth when he singled to load the bases. He was replaced by Jose Cisnero, who gave up the one out RBI single by Moustakas, which snapped an 0 for 18 slump. Cisnero then walked Kottaras on four pitches to put the Royals on top.

They added two more runs when Escobar grounded into a force out to score Hosmer before an error by Marwin Gonzalez allowed Moustakas to go home.
