      Moustakas' HR in 13th lifts Royals past Mariners


      KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Mike Moustakas homered to lead off the 13th inning, lifting the Kansas City Royals to a 7-6 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Thursday.


      Moustakas homered to right on an 0-2 pitch from Chance Ruffin (0-1), who had not pitched in the majors since 2011.


      Louis Coleman (3-0), the eighth Kansas City pitcher, retired the only batter he faced in the top of the 13th.


      Kansas City rallied from five runs down and led 6-5 in the ninth inning before Raul Ibanez homered off Greg Holland into the Mariners' bullpen with two outs to tie the score. It was Holland's first blown save since May 6 to end his streak of 31 consecutive saves.
