Mike Moustakas went 4 for 5, Lorenzo Cain drove in a career high five runs, Kendrys Morales drove in three more and the Royals flexed their muscles pounding out 17 hits in a 12-1 win over the Yankees. The Royals scored ten of the runs in the sixth and seventh innings.
In that sixth inning, the Royals sent 11 batters to the plate, had six hits and chased start Michael Pineda and two relievers. Omar Infante and Paulo Orlando drove in runs to start rally, Cain added a two-run single off Justin Wilson later in the inning and Morales and Alex Gordon also drove in runs.
Moose came just a few feet away from hitting for the cycle. He tripled, doubled and singled his first three times at bat. He grounded out in the sixth, and then hit one high down the left-field line in the seventh that bounced off the wall, around the 330 sign, just a few feet from the top of the wall. He ended up with his second double of the game.
