KANSAS CITY, Mo. — 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.


Billy Butler went 5 for 5, matching his career high in hits for the Royals, while Emilo Bonifacio went 4 for 6 for his first four-hit game since July 4, 2009.


Orioles 3, White Sox 1


BALTIMORE — Miguel Gonzalez allowed one run over seven innings and Baltimore hit three solo home runs in a victory over skidding Chicago.


Adam Jones, J.J. Hardy and Brian Roberts homered off Jose Quintana (7-6) to provide Baltimore with a much-needed win. The Orioles were coming off a 3-6 road trip that dropped them four games off the pace in the AL wild-card hunt.


Gonzalez (9-7) gave up four hits, all singles, walked one and struck out six to earn his first win in seven starts since July 20. He was 0-4 in that span.


Tommy Hunter allowed a single in the eighth and Jim Johnson worked a perfect ninth for his 42nd save.


Reds 6, Cardinals 2


CINCINNATI — Todd Frazier hit two homers, including the first of Cincinnati’s three off Lance Lynn, and the Reds recovered from a 16-inning loss by overpowering St. Louis, taking three of four in their final series of the season.


Jay Bruce and Shin-Soo Choo also hit solo homers off Lynn (13-10), who lasted five innings and gave up three homers for only the second time in his career. Frazier also connected off Seth Maness for the third multihomer game of his career.


Left-hander Tony Cingrani (7-3) returned from a sore back and did a little bit of everything. He pitched into the sixth inning, gave up two runs, bunted for a hit, stole a base and scored.


David Freese homered for the Cardinals, who have lost six of eight.
