Mike Moustakas hits Mendoza Line with homer Friday night
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas has pretty much struggled against every team but the Indians this season. He slugged his sixth home run against their AL Central rival in 2014 on Friday, a solo blast in the second inning.

Moustakas is now on a season-high five-game hitting streak to raise his batting average to .200 for the first time this year. He is 7 for 18 during that stretch.

Embattled Billy Butler blasts off to play hero in victory
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Royals designated hitter Billy Butler has lost his full-time starting job, so he took out his frustration on a baseball in the eighth inning of a Friday night win against Cleveland.

Butler ripped a John Axford pitch an estimated 455 feet into the left field seats for his fourth home run. The two-run rocket broke a 4-4 tie and proved to be the game-winner. The pinch-hit gave him just four hits in his last 24 at-bats.

Yordano Ventura picks up a no decision
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura picked up a no-decision Friday against the Indians. 

Ventura gave up four runs, three earned, on six hits over 6 1/3 innings. He struck out seven and walked one. Carlos Santana was the main culprit behind Ventura’s struggles. Santana belted a solo shot off Ventura in the fourth inning, and added a two-run shot in the sixth. Ventura pitched into the seventh inning, but was pulled after putting a man on. The runner would come around to score on a sac fly. The run was credited to Ventura.

The game was tied when Ventura left, giving him a no-decision. His next start will come against the Twins.
