Kansas City received a break on a misplayed ball in the second inning to score a single unearned run against Michael Wacha.
However, the Royals certainly earned the six they scored in the third inning, which was capped by a three-run homer by Jorge Soler at Busch Stadium.
The Royals had five hits in the inning against Wacha to open a 7-0 lead in support of starter Ben Keller.
After Nicky Lopez sinled, Adalberto singled in Merrifield. Alex Gordon was intentionally walked to load the bases. Hunter Dozier’s sacrifice fly scored a run before Soler hit his 11th homer 411 feet.
