Mike Moustakas had three hits and three RBIs, Kendrys Morales kept up his torrid two-out hitting and the AL Central-leading Kansas City Royals beat the Tampa Bay Rays 6-3 on Saturday night.
Eric Hosmer tied a season high with four hits, pinch-runner Jarrod Dyson scored the go-ahead run in the 13th inning on a throwing error by rookie reliever Mike Morin, and the Kansas City Royals beat the Los Angeles Angels 7-4 on Saturday night.
Danny Valencia led off the 13th inning with a double off the fence in left-center. Dyson went into run for him and scored when Morin (0-1) fielded Alcides Escobar’s sacrifice bunt and threw the ball past first base as Dyson came home. Nori Aoki hit an RBI single and Billy Butler capped the scoring with his second sacrifice fly.
Aaron Crow (2-1) pitched two innings for the victory and Greg Holland got three outs for the save, ending the 4 hour, 53-minute marathon.
