Royals' Mike Moustakas breaks through with HR, go-ahead RBI hit
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Mike Moustakas hit two-run homer in the fourth inning and then delivered the go-ahead run with a single in the eighth to help lift the Royals over the Twins on Tuesday.

"You almost want to stand up on this table and yell, 'I told you so!'" Royals manager Ned Yost said referring to his decision to sick with the struggling third baseman. "But I'm not. I'm not an I-told-you-so kind of guy." 

Moustakas was 2 for his last 16 entering Tuesday's game.

Royals' Mike Moustakas learning to hit over infield shift
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas was crippled by the infield shift in 2014, reducing him to a .212 hitter. But since Kansas City's postseason run, Moustakas has opted to hit the ball over the shift, which resulted in a franchise-record five postseason homers and one through three games this season.

"I think back to when I was in the minors, I used to use all fields to some degree," Moustakas said, per MLB.com. "Then when I got up here, I started to feel like I had to pull everything. I was definitely a dead-pull hitter.

"But now I feel like I'm going back to the hitter I used to be, someone who can drive the ball the other way. The shift has definitely made me more of a complete hitter."
