Major League Baseball: Royals 8, Tigers 5
DETROIT (AP) Buck Farmer kept throwing changeups to Mike Moustakas, and the Kansas City slugger eventually adjusted.
Moustakas hit a tie-breaking, three-run homer in the seventh inning, and the Kansas City Royals outlasted the Detroit Tigers 8-5 on Sunday to earn a split of their four-game series.
Abraham Almonte hit a grand slam in the sixth to give the Royals a 5-2 lead, but Detroit tied it with three runs in the bottom of the inning.
