Facing elimination on Monday in Houston, the Royals surged back from a 6-2 deficit to beat Houston 9-6 and tie their American League Division Series 2-2. The victory at least in part was stirred by third baseman Mike Moustakas’ passionate words.
The Kansas City Royals trailed by four runs after seven innings. On the brink of elimination in the series, KC scored five runs in the eighth inning and took the lead. Eric Hosmer added a two-run homer in the ninth inning
