Royals roar into first place with 11-4 pounding of Tigers for ninth straight victory

The Royals beat the Tigers 11-4 on Tuesday night to overtake Detroit as leaders of the American League's Central division and extend their winning streak to nine games. Kansas City did most of its damage in a seven-run second inning against Tigers ace Max Scherzer, when Alex Gordon and Mike Moustakas both hit two-run homers, Omar Infante added a two-RBI single and Eric Hosmer hit an RBI ground out.
