KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Jorge Soler got Kansas City going with a record-breaking home run before Ryan OHearn ended the game with one swing of his bat.
Soler eclipsed the franchise home run mark with his 39th homer of the season and OHearn hit a pinch-hit, game-ending home run in the bottom of the ninth to lift the Royals to a 6-5 win over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night.
OHearn sent the first pitch he saw from Zac Reininger (0-1) in the ninth inning over the fence in right field after a seesaw final three innings.
