Major League Baseball: Royals 11, Twins 8
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Mike Moustakas helped the Kansas City Royals take a nine-run lead in the second inning. They nearly gave it all away.
Moustakas homered, doubled and drove in four runs in the first two innings, Jorge Soler went 4 for 5 with a home run, but the Royals nearly blew the big lead before holding on for a 11-8 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday night.
Moustakas double in the first scored Jon Jay and Alcides Escobar. Moustakas 12th homer was a towering two-run shot in the second that just made it into the front row of the right-field seats and barely fair.
