Johnny Giavotella’s three-run homer rallies Royals to 9-7 win over Mariners

Johnny Giavotella’s three-run home run in the seventh inning rallied to the Royals to a 9-7 win over the Mariners in a seesaw game Sunday in Seattle. Alcides Escobar hit a grand-slam home run in the second inning as the Royals built a 4-0 lead, but Kansas City starter Jeremy Guthrie surrendered three home runs and the lead before Giavotella’s blast in the seventh. The teams split the four-game series at two wins apiece.
