Moustakas and Moss homered in the victory of the Royals

Third baseman Mike Moustakas and designated hitter Brandon Moss hit home runs and the Kansas City Royals beat the Minnesota Twins 7-6.

The victory for the Royals is the second they get in the last eight games.
Moustakas (36) hit home run for the first time since mid-August, in the third inning, with two runners ahead.

Moss (18) also sent the ball on the other side of the fence with a runner on base.

Dominican ranger Melky Cabrera hit 4 of 5 and tied his best hit record so far this season.

The win was credited by starter Jason Hammel (7-10) in six and one-third innings, allowing seven hits, a home run and four runs.

The Twins are a game behind the New York Yankees for the first wild card in the American League.

In the ninth of Minnesota, short-field innkeeper Jorge Polanco (10) struck out four corners in the first episode, with a runner on base, over Jason Hammel’s serpentine, with no out at the entrance.

Defeated starter Dillon Gee (1-2) in two and two-thirds, conceding six hits, a home run and five runs.
