Update (8:38 PM EDT): Mike Moustakas made it 2-0 when he lined a home run over the fence in right-center field with one out in the bottom of the second inning. The home run was reviewed as a fan reached over the fence to catch it, but the initial ruling was upheld.
Playing in a potential clincher in ALCS Game 6, Royals second baseman Ben Zobrist gave his team an early lead when he swatted a solo home run in the bottom of the first inning against Blue Jays starter David Price. It’s Zobrist’s second homer this post-season, with his other coming in the first inning of the Royals’ Game 4 win against the Jays.
If the Royals can maintain the lead, they’ll earn the right to play the Mets in the World Series.
