The Kansas City Royals picked up another win and a series victory on Sunday defeating the New York Mets 6-2 at Citi Field.
Mike Moustakas put the Royals on the scoreboard first with a solo shot in the fourth. Moose jumped over a 2-0 fastball from Zack Wheeler crushing the pitch to right-center for his 10th homer of the season.
Kansas City increased their lead with a three-run fifth. David Lough led off the inning with a "double" (Marlon Byrd lost the flyball in the sun) then advanced to third on a Miguel Tejada bunt. Jarrod Dyson pinch-ran for Lough and ended up scoring on a wild pitch. Lough left the game with right quad tightness according to Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star.
Hosmer ended up drawing a walk then Alex Gordon reached base on an error; Byrd lost a second flyball in the second flat-out dropping this one. Lorenzo Cain followed with a single to right easily driving in Hosmer; Gordon was also able to score on the play thanks to Byrd bobbling the ball.
