Moustakas, Almonte slug Royals past Tigers 8-5

DETROIT (AP) Buck Farmer kept throwing changeups to Mike Moustakas, and the Kansas City slugger eventually adjusted.

"After the first three or four, I was starting sitting on it," Moustakas said. "Finally, he ended up leaving one up, and I was able to get a good swing on it."

Moustakas hit a tiebreaking, 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.
